Welcome to Youth Dance!

Classes are taught by instructors who are professionals in their field and dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing learning environment. Our methodical, comprehensive curriculum is structured to promote growth and progression and foster a love and appreciation for the art of ballet.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and supportive learning environment for all students. We understand that each student has unique needs and learning styles, and that's why we keep our class sizes limited, allowing our instructors to provide individualized attention and guidance to each student. This approach helps to ensure that each student is able to progress at their own pace and reach their full potential.


We are dedicated to providing the highest quality ballet education to our students. To ensure that each student is placed in the appropriate level, we require a placement evaluation for all new ballet students at Level I and above. Request an evaluation.
