Indoor Theater Program
Musical Theatre Dance is rooted in the diverse history of Broadway and spans many dance styles. With a focus on musical interpretation and storytelling, students will learn movement in the style of Broadway shows throughout history. We will focus on acting through movement, and have fun learning choreography inspired by our favorite musicals! Students are requested to wear clothing they can comfortably move in, and we suggest jazz shoes or sneakers that are worn only in the studio.
Virtual Dance & Movement Program
We are offering the option to Zoom in LIVE for our indoor dance classes. If you prefer your child to take the dance classes from home, we will provide you with access to live zoom into the class and participate from home. Please make sure your child wears clothes that they can move in freely and supportive shoes. Sneakers or jazz shoes are preferred.
Important Program Details

Refund Policy During Covid
We are operating in an unprecedented, uncharted territory with many unknown variables. State / City mandated closures, or new guidelines can occur at any time, with very short notice. We may be forced to change/shut down our indoor “in person” program if this happens.
In the event that we have to adjust our in-studio program, we will immediately switch our classes to Zoom on the same schedule. No refunds will be given as the session would continue online until we could return to the studio.
