As athletic activists, we know it’s important to stay in shape over the summer. That’s why we offer summer programs for different age groups and intensities to keep your child dancing. No matter which option students choose, they’ll keep learning and growing this summer.

Thank you for creating an environment where my daughter feels safe: not just in the traditional sense of the word (although it’s obviously important), but in so many other ways. Safe to learn and refine the technical aspects of her dancing, safe to discuss issues with you, safe to explore her artistry in a welcoming and collaborative environment, an environment where she feels valued and secure.
