* Pre-Company Classes(Ages 5 & Up)
The ‘pre – company’ classes allow dancers to get more involved without having the full commitment of competitive company.  This class will work great as a ‘stepping stone’ for dancers interested into competitive dance, or just be a great ‘balance’ for dancers who want more but not all.  It will push dancers to grow and excel, and will bring new experiences as they get to travel and be a part of the spring dance competition.
