TECHNIQUE PROGRAMS (AGES 6 AND UP)

Registration link is here.

We believe that students need technique classes all year to make them strong dancers. Dancers with strong technique foundations can take their training anywhere, whether it is to conventions, workshops or auditions. Strong, flexible dancers have less injuries.

The technique program is for our students that would like to just work on dance technique without any competitions or performances.

Some of our competitive programs require extra technique classes. This allows the teacher to work on the demanding elements that they need for choreography classes by strengthening their technique, working on their flexibility and improving their dance skills.
