1. Basics & Dance Team — Ages 6-15

kids teens ballroom

Practicing face-to-face contact with others beyond their own friends, this course combines dance lessons with common courtesies, helping students create a positive impression on others. An edge that will help your child in life.


  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Respect and acceptance of individual differences
  • Social skills and teamwork
  • Coordination and musicality

The dance steps help break the ice and create a teamwork effort with various partners, while learning coordination and having fun! The cumulative effect of dancing and socializing over the months and years is of students who not only have fun and learn a great movement skill; they shed their shyness and emerge with self-confidence.
