The Dance Place Ltd. Performances have been equated with "Broadway Production Standards" year after year! Our Goals are to provide our dancers and families with a production of which they can be proud. It is about how we may serve our clients....we bring our "A" game!

Performing opportunities: Full Dance Season/Fall enrollment Required

Through weekly study, our recreational dancers progress at their own pace, accumulating both knowledge and experience to be utilized in our Spring Recital Shows! Beautiful costumes, age appropriate choreography and quality instruction make our dancers feel good about themselves, and our parents, glad to be part of The Dance Place Ltd.!

Preschool Ballet (Age 3 - 4)

Our preschool program incorporates the basics of ballet with the dynamics of dance through games appropriate to the dancer’s age. Including: stage direction, rhythm and coordination, dancer anatomy and vocabulary. We ask our preschool dancers to bring a “baby” (small doll or stuffed animal) to every class, which starts as their comfort companion, transforms into their dance buddy, and ends up as their audience. We camouflage the learning with fun!

Ballet (Age 5 - Adult)

The Dance Place offers quality instruction in both Checchetti and Russian methods and terminology. Classical Ballet, Character Ballet, and Lyrical Ballet are all incorporated in our instruction. Advanced levels are available to our more accomplished ballet students.

Pointe (Select Ballet Students)

It is an extension of their ballet study, for those who qualify. Advanced-level Pointe students perform in every show of our annual end-of-season dance recitals.


Contemporary dance embodies ballet, modern, jazz and lyrical. It uses a technique such as ballet as its fundamentals and creates many more movements that do not adhere to the strict rules of ballet and modern. There are different categories of contemporary dance such as Contemporary Ballet and Contemporary Jazz.

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.
