Dance classes at the Music Center follow a strong, age-appropriate dance curriculum designed to give young students an introduction to dance that covers basics in tap, ballet, jazz and creative movement. The main goal of the dance program is to teach dancers to be creative, physically fit, flexible, confident and artistic.
