Organized into beginner, intermediate, and advanced tiers based on the student's school grade, classes focus on tap, Broadway-jazz, hip-hop, and ballet styles. Students get to take as many classes as they like and can mix and match dance styles until they discover the ones they like best. Most dance classes are an hour long and scheduled in the evenings Monday through Thursday. Acting classes help students develop some of the fundamental skills required for stage performance, such as body control, diction, and character creation. Separate sessions are scheduled for each age group.
