*On evenings when we have visiting professionals, the lesson is NOT included with dance admission.

Group classes run for four consecutive weeks unless otherwise indicated (or 5 depending on the month) and meet at the same time and same night every week.  Group classes will continue and progress to a higher dance level (denoted by roman numerals or intermediate or advanced classification) the following months if there is enough enrollment.  Students can join ongoing classes at their level at any time.  Fees are calculated on a monthly basis but can be pro-rated for missed classes. All group classes require a minimum of six students to pre-register in order to take place.  Classes without sufficient enrollment may be cancelled prior to the first night of class.  If you want to confirm that a class is taking place before visiting us, please call us.
