Youth Academy Division: 2016 – 2017 Season
Ages 7 – 16.
The Youth Academy division is designed to ignite the love of recreational dance through foundational ballet technique, musical calisthenics, creativity, teamwork and play for our young dancers. We are committed to providing the highest quality ballet training to all students while developing the next generation of creative minds and pre-professionals!
