Dance Classes

_DSC0353_edited.jpg

Dance is a wonderful form of expression that with proper training, can develop into grace and beauty.  Dance at CSA begins as early as age 3 with the focus on creativity, imagination, and

pre-ballet techniques.  By age 6, instruction focuses on formal ballet and tap techniques with emphasis on self-control of the body.  By age 8, elements of jazz, hip-hop and musical theatre

are introduced.

 

CSA offers wonderful instructors who are trained in both classical dance as well as pop and jazz forms and musical theatre choreography.  Private lessons

as well as group classes

are available.   

 

Classes meet weekly.
