Recreational Classes

Our recreational classes are designed for anyone who has the desire to learn to dance. Students are placed according to their age as we find most students enjoy dancing with their peers. The same adult staff teaches both the recreational dancers and company dancers at Dance Works. We have two beautiful dance rooms with hard wood floors. You can watch your child’s progress at anytime through our large viewing windows! Here is a short description of the classes we offer:

(For ages 3 and 4)
Tinytots- The tinytot program is perfect for the beginner student ages 3 and 4. This 45-minute class will combine beginner skills in ballet, jazz and tumbling. The goal is to increase basic motor skills through dance and to learn to follow directions while having fun with children their own age.

(For ages 5 and 6)

Dance Company

Dance Company is geared for the student who wants to take dance to the next level and for students who love to be on the stage! We have a tot company for student’s ages 5 and 6. No audition is required and the desire to learn and have fun is all we ask for. We have three main companies for student’s ages 7- high school senior. Any student can audition however; students are placed according to their technical and performance abilities. At Dance Works we have a lot of fun participating in dance competitions. Our students not only learn a lot by watching other talented performers but they also learn a lot about themselves. While we are always attempting to improve our technical abilities, having fun is our ultimate goal! We are proud of each and every student just for getting up on the stage. Our auditions are always just after our recital sometime in June. Please feel free to contact Pam if Dance Company is what you are looking for!
