|Technical (Seasonal) Classes
|There are two divisions of classes:
Recreational (REC) and Technical (TECH).
REC classes run as a 6 week program, with 4 programs a year offered throughout a
school year. This program is designed for the dancer who isn't sure of what they want
to take, cannot commit to a full year, and is more cost effective for some, and for a
dancer who doesn't want to be a part of a show. A student who wants a variety, and
is less serious about the technical side of dance (just for fun).
TECH (seasonal) classes run for 9 months, mid September to end
of May, and are for the more serious student, with a large variety of
class choices for students ages 2 to adult. These classes are
dedicated to technical study , studio dress code is required such as
proper dance attire and shoes, and all TECH students take part in
our year end musical, and have the opportunity to be invited to our
competitive Dance team and/or DEAA Theatre Company. The only
class that does not take place for nine months is our Wee dance
(parent and baby) please read for details.
