A: We offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, acro, lyrical, pointe', modern, hip hop and clogging. (Some classes are by recommendation and age.)
Q: How much does it cost?
A: See our rates page. Our rates are by the time you are in the studio, not by class.
Q: Why do the students need tights and a leotard?
A: Tights and a leotard allow our teachers to see the students' body placement and alignment. To train our students to the best of our ability, we must be able to see our student's bodies. T-shirts and shorts do not allow us to make the proper corrections. It also teaches the students to love themselves and be proud of who they are and their bodies.
