Competition Classes

Beginner Adult Tap Class

a Family Friendly Studio in STallings, NC

Our recreational program is designed for dancers of various ages and dance experiences.  This includes young, beginner dancers all the way through our advanced adults!  The recreational classes at our studio are taught at a level that will allow dancers who so desire to use them as a stepping stone to join our competition team.  They are also designed to allow students who are not interested in dancing competitively and who would like to remain in our recreational program to continue to advance in their dance education.  We always seek to help our dancers excel in a positive, safe, and encouraging environment.  We offer recreational classes in the styles of Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Contemporary/Lyrical.  For more information on any of these classes, please contact us.  Please note that these classes will begin the first week of September, with our first day of classes being Tuesday, September 4th, 2018!
