State Street Dance Studio's faculty of professional dancers coaxes strength, confidence, and lyrical expression from youthful appendages through classes designed for ages 3 and older. A packed schedule boasts more than 70 classes each week, teaching toes to trip the light fantastic rather than fall over cutouts of Charlie Brown during 1- to 3.5-hour lessons. The studio boosts musical awareness, cultivates polite classroom behavior, and instills a love of movement in a predance readiness program for ages 3–7. Youths ages 7 and 8 are shuttled straight into basic ballet classes, where they develop a choreographed vocabulary that enables them to pass secret messages in school using only their elbows before sashaying onto different styles.
All students gather in one of three spacious studios for instruction in a wide array of movement styles, including tap, yoga, hip-hop, and ballroom dancing for adults, which may be mixed and matched in any combination to suit the participant's experience level and schedule. Clad according to the dress code, legs learn the art of conjuring weightless leaps during ballet, and midsections slither in imitations of boa constrictors performing Bob Fosse routines during jazz lessons.
