Levels (adult program)
Recreational
Recreational classes are for students who want to dance for enjoyment rather than training. There are fundamental basics, but it's mostly for fun or exercise.

Beginner
Beginner classes are designed for students who have had some dance training (ie: many years ago, when younger, or stopped for a period of time), but remember the basic fundamentals. Beginner/Intermediate classes review beginner principles while moving at a faster pace.

Intermediate
Intermediate classes meet in the middle of beginner and advanced levels. They are best for students who have mastered the basics, comfortable with moving quicker, and may require some, but not a lot of review. Intermediate/Advanced classes are for those who have had a significant amount of instruction, are comfortable in their discipline, and are working towards an advanced level course.    

Advanced
Advanced classes are for students with many years of training and require minimal review.

Professional
Our Professional Division is suggested for dancers, teachers, instructors, choreographers, directors, etc. who want a higher level of training to continue their education, polish, maintain, share, and connect with others in their particular dance field.
