Youth Program

Our Youth Program offers classes at a variety of levels for dancers age 5-18. Classes are based on a 9 month program, beginning mid-September and ending in mid-June, culminating in a live performance. 

Students explore tap technique, history, and music through a curriculum developed to give a deeper education into the art of tap dance.  Dancers learn historical and contemporary choreography as they move through the program, adding skills and repertory each season.  New students to our program can schedule an assessment with faculty to determine the best level of class to enroll based on current skills. Scholarship assistance available for those who qualify.
