PLEASE NOTE: Registration for a series assumes you will attend those classes (or at least the majority of those classes). Instructors will not be able to offer individual make-up classes or take-home material for you to learn at home should you miss a class. Attending subsequent session classes as "make-ups" for missed classes from the session prior will not be an option.
The following classes are open-level (beginners welcome!) drop-in classes (no pre-registration required) unless otherwise noted! Each class is $12.

A note about attendance: we typically get a nice turn-out in our adult classes, but should just one dancer come for any class, it is at the instructor's discretion whether to run the full hour-long class or offer a 30-minute private lesson (still a great value at this price). We appreciate your understanding!
Attire: We're not picky! Please plan to wear something that allows you to move freely and feels comfortable for you. We recommend you NOT wear anything restrictive (like jeans) - even for Tap classes. For Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz and Stretch/Yoga classes, please consider wearing something at least slightly form-fitting, so the instructor can see your form enough to make helpful corrections. Bring a mat for Yoga and Stretch classes, please.
