At Dance Theme, we strive to provide programming to meet every student’s needs.

With Dance Theme’s blend of incredible training in a fun and positive environment, dancers are encouraged to reach their personal goals.
The programs are structured so that every student is challenged at the appropriate level to meet their needs and desires.
These programs have no performing obligations and are a great way to introduce your child to dance without the commitment of purchasing special class wear and costumes.

The last class of the program is a viewing class where parents are invited to watch what the students have learned.
