We have very special weekly classes for children ages 18 months to 8 years that you are going to love. Over the years, we have carefully developed a curriculum and lesson plans that provide a wonderful platform for our instructors to engage their own creativity and expertise to teach your children the best dance technique while having a lot of fun and nurturing their artistic expression. Our perfect class sizes ensure that your child will get a lot of individual attention from the instructor and will get to build friendships with other kids who have similar interests.
Our invitation-only Pre-Professional Classes are for teenagers with a passionate dedication to dance. These classes are taught by highly qualified instructors, training dancers who aspire to become professional performance artists, and giving all dancers a strong work ethic and pride in accomplishment.

New Class Options for January 2020!
Praise Dance Class:
Open to all ages, Praise Dance draws upon both deep-rooted tradition and immediate inspiration to express the joy, love, wonder, and awe of the relationship between we humans and the Divine. As human beings, we all experience what it is to be physically moved by spirit: to lift up our hands at the sight of a beautiful sunset, to bow our heads in sorrow, or to jump for joy. Praise Dance builds upon that inspired sense of movement, helping us both to express our faith as a form of worship and to tell the story of our faith to a broader audience. This ecumenical class will be rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition, but welcomes all who feel moved by the unseen to dance. Thursdays 6:45-7:45pm; free tuition with $25 Registration Fee.
Homeschool Dance Classes (8 weeks):
Looking for a way to add art, music, and movement into your homeschool curriculum? Our Homeschool Dance Classes were created to offer flexibility and affordability for homeschooling families. Classes include ballet, creative movement, tap, and jazz, taught by the gentle teacher of our wonderful cottage school, the Circle Play and Learn Academy. Thursdays, March 12-May 7th (no class Spring Break week); $15 Registration Fee.

Adaptive Dance (8 weeks):
For all levels and ages, our Adaptive Dance class is specially crafted for the needs of individuals with differing abilities.

Class will include various genres for a fun and gentle experience. A parent or guardian is requested to stay at class with their dancer. Thursdays 12:45-1:30pm; March 12-May 7th (no class Spring Break week). $106/8weeks; $15 Registration Fee.

New this year, we are offering Pre-Professional Tracks for those dancers who desire to reach their full potential in a certain genre of dance--and possibly become professional dancers or dance teachers. These Tracks are groups of classes that include those dance styles most important for developing the technique, strength, and knowledge needed for you to be successful at auditions for performance opportunities and interviews for job opportunities at FSB and beyond. The Pre-Professional Tracks not only provide the genres that are imperative for developing the pre-professional dancer, they offer great deals on tuition! Because Conditioning is so important for building the strength, flexibility, and stamina that dancers need, it is included in the tracks for free! Then we also take a little extra off the tuition for the other classes in the track. And, any additional classes you sign up for will be 75% off!
The Pre-Professional Tracks include:
Pre-Professional Ballet: ballet at your level, modern, and conditioning. (Package price for Levels I, II, III, and IV+ are $80, $110, $140, and $170)
Pre-Professional Contemporary: contemporary, jazz, modern, ballet technique, and conditioning. (Package price for Levels I- II is $100 and Level III+ is $115)
Pre-Professional Circus: circus arts, acro, ballet technique, and conditioning. (Package price is $115)
Pre-Professional Broadway: jazz, ballet technique, tap, and conditioning. (Package price is $95)
To sign up for the Pre-Professional Tracks, enroll in each of the individual classes in that package and note the track name in the comments section during enrollment. The online registration form will allow you to register for only 5 classes at a time. Submit your registration for your first five classes, then open the registration form again and register for the rest of them.
