Classes for Experienced Dance Students

Options for all ages & abilities ages 11 & up

Our classes for experienced students are designed to provide an outlet for students ages 11 and up who would like to continue their passion for dance. Studio North Dance Arts provides students with the highest quality dance training, allowing tweens and teens to reach their fullest potential. These classes provide open opportunities to dance for boys and girls ages 11 through 19. Our experienced program allows dancers to explore the fundamental teachings of the three classical genres: ballet, tap and jazz, while modern, acroDance and hip-hop provide the opportunity to explore more contemporary forms of dance. Students are placed in classes based on their age and experience, and are continually evaluated by our faculty to insure proper placement. In an environment that builds self-esteem and confidence, parents are assured their child will develop necessary life tools that extend far beyond the classroom. A weekly ballet class is recommended for dancers in all disciplines to aid in development of technique, musicality and stage presence.
