Dance classes are taught through Innovation Arts Connection. The progressive curriculum focuses on dance concepts and core techniques. We stress the importance of respect, a positive attitude, and hard work. In our classes, students will develop grace, rhythm, coordination, creativity, and confidence in a fun, safe, and structured environment.
