Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced

Ages 11-18 - Our Dancers ages 11 and up are encouraged to take a ballet class along with any other genres of dance that we have to offer at Dance Expressions. Although recreational dancers are not required to participate in a ballet class, our faculty believes that in order to have a strong background in dance, all dancers should participate in ballet. In addition to ballet, these dancers have the option to take as many classes in the styles they like such as tap, jazz, contemporary, acrobatics and hip hop.
