What We Offer!
The Academy of Dance Expressions offers dance classes for students ages 18 months to adults for beginners to advanced levels.
Our students are placed based not only on their age, but equally on their experience, training as well as their skill and maturity levels.
Dance Expressions recognizes and is sensitive to the varied needs of its dance student's population. We offer 4 fabulous unique dance programs that we feel fit most of a dancer's situation. Even if a student has interests in sports, music, martial arts, etc. and wishes to fit in one or more dance classes of their choosing, it can be done! We offer classes in ballet, jazz, modern, pointe, acro, boys' and girls' hip hop, lyrical and contemporary dance in a small class size setting. If you wish to be a more serious dancer, we can also accommodate that as well.
RECREATIONAL DANCE which is designed for someone who wishes to take perhaps only one or two classes of their choosing per week and is encouraged to participate in our annual June performance.
PERFORMANCE GROUP is for students who wish to take two or more classes one of which must be ballet and who elect to participate in our wonderful innovative Community Service opportunities. The dancer commits to perform not only in our annual performance but to varied audiences in the community such as parades, senior centers, sporting events, nursing homes, etc. This is a chance to perform all year round.
COMPETITIVE DANCE is a program for dancers normally ages 11 or older who have 4 years of previous dance training with an emphasis in ballet. Acceptance into this program is done through an audition process in the Springtime with a panel of professional judges where the dancers will be placed for the new Fall season. There are required classes that the dancer will be placed in. Dancers will compete 1 to 2 times per year and are required to allocate more hours to train soon before the competitions.
PRE-PROFESSIONAL DANCE program is for a dancer who wishes to pursue a dance college education and/or follow a professional dancer career. This is for the more serious, talented and devoted dancer. Must have 8 years of dance training and decided with their parents to make this commitment. Dancers will be required to take an extensive dance curriculum as defined by the Dance Director and will be mentored by her and select staff members.
