PERFORMANCE CLASSES          –         THE BEST WAY TO GET YOUR DANCING TO THE NEXT LEVEL FAST!


“A Performance Class is hands-down the fastest, most efficient way to take your dancing to the next level! The process is truly remarkable and any student with the desire and dedication to become a great dancer will transform into one over the duration of this course. Once students participate in one performance class, they are usually hooked and can’t get enough of the spotlight so they continue on a performance track!” – Julie Berger, Founder and Artistic Director
