Our main session of classes run from early September through the end of May and culminate in a spring recital in early June.  We accept enrollments in our classes through the end of January.  When you register, you have a spot in the class for the entire season, but can end your dancer’s enrollment at any time.

We also offer a summer session which runs from late June-early August.

Most dancers choose to participate in the spring recital.  However, dancers are not required to.  Dancers are welcome to take classes and opt out of the spring recital.
