Classes for dancers who've mastered the basics and are ready for more challenge and push in their classes! These dancers can also now be a part of our optional Competitive Dance Team!
Classes are offered on the same schedule as the school year, September-June. All of our classes participate in our December Toy Drive Recital, and June Spring Showcase Recital to show off the fun skills and dacnce moves they've learned through out the year! Students are placed into levels for each class depending on their current ability and skill level. Teachers will notify the office and parent when a dancer is ready to move up a level!

Water & snacks: parents, to help your dancer have the best experience please send them with a waterbottle and snack each day!
Storing dance gear: we have designated hooks/cubbies for dancers to hang their bags so that they can leave their shoes & dance wear at the studio!
We are closed for a few holidays, but are often open when the schools are closed (for example, we are open for a partial day on Halloween). Please check our calendar for up-to-date closure and partial day information.
Our competitive teamers travel to Portland Oregon for multiple dance conventions and competitions each year! We start our season in July, learning technique and choreography, and end in June at the studio-wide Spring Showcase.
COMPETITIONS & CONVENTIONS
After a few months of practicing, we attend conventions where our dancers take master classes from leading names in the dance industry. Then it's time for the competitions! We attend a few competitions where the dancers perform their routines for a panel of judges to earn prizes. Competitions & conventions available vairy yearly, but usually incude 3-4 of the following: Tremaine, Jump, Act 1, Spotlight, & Move.
Dance team is open to ages 7 and up. Participants must be attending ballet, jazz, and performance team classes all year. One convention & competition is required, all others are optional. Fundraising opportunities are available.
