Classes

Dance is considered to be an artistic form of nonverbal communication; which can be expressed in a variety of different styles.

At the Dance Zone, we offer instruction for many such themes as Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre. We begin classes at age 3 and offer classes up to adults.

For more information on any of these styles or our classes,
