Classes are drop-in classes which means you do not need to pre-register to take class. You can start at any time. No audition required. Just show up as often as you like. 5 times a week, every other week, once a month, or once a year…whatever works for you! If you arrive late for class, please check with the teacher to determine whether it is still possible to join class.
Classes are given at a high Intermediate/low advanced level, but we have all different levels of dancers attending, from a more beginner/elementary dancer to professional dancers during their time off! We do have both men and women attending these classes. The atmosphere is very welcoming… most of our attendees are dancers who have studied dance at some point earlier in life and are coming back because they miss having dance in their life. Starting back can take time, so be gentle with your first classes back, if it hasn’t been a while and enjoy the experience once again! You can push yourself as hard or as easy as you like in these classes to make your time with us as enjoyable as you want!
Unfortunately, we do not offer a beginning adult level. If you have had no training at all, please contact us for other options (801-869-6912)… we may be able to help you find a place to begin your studies.
