We suggest that any student interested in dance start with a ballet class. Ballet is the foundation of all other styles and is the best source of preparation for every dancer regardless of age or experience.
Pointe work is exclusive to dancers with extensive ballet experience. If you are interested in Pointe please speak with our faculty about your child's readiness.
Tap is a timeless dance style. Found in classic movies, musicals, on Broadway, and even in current movies such as Happy Feet. Tap is also a great alternative for a little boy who wants a drum set.

Our "Cirque Du Soleil" themed classes combines acrobatics, contortion training and theatrics to become your child's new favorite class.
Modern meets somewhere between the structure of ballet and the free form of lyrical.

Awaken Dance Ensemble
Our competition team is an invitation-only group. We make selections based on day to day performance and attitude of dancers. In our opinion, anyone can rock an audition but we want dancers who can show up to every class with the attitude and energy of an audition. At Awaken, as in life, "every day is an audition." If you are interested in being a part of Awaken Dance Ensemble please inquire with the front desk.
