Performance Class (Age 5.5-7.5 with Teacher Recommendation)

This class gives more performance opportunities such as parades and fairs in addition to the spring recital. It also starts preparing dancers for further study, if they choose to become more involved in dance.


Technique Class (Age 8 – Adult with Teacher Recommendation)

This class concentrates on turns and progressions, jumps and leaps, and body conditioning. It is for children with a desire to reach advance level classes and/or dance/pom teams.


Junior/Senior Line Performance Groups (By Audition)

The prestigious position of opening all of our Spring Recital Shows is made possible free of charge to Dance Place Ltd. students who qualify through audition.

We offer three teams of various ages and levels of participation. These dancers compete regionally and nationally while furthering their studies outside of their home studio. These teams also enjoy performing in non-competitive events, such as fairs, parades, dinner theater, Disney World, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, etc.
