Young Ballerinas

Spring Session 2021

Start Date: January 18th, 2021


Private/Small Group Training

Private lessons (1 or 2 students) are an opportunity for one-on-one coaching from one of our fabulous instructors. Our teachers make it fun and easy for beginners and advanced dancers alike. Though all students learn at their own pace, they may learn faster in a private lesson where there is more opportunity for individual attention. When paired with group classes, students can excel in their training exponentially! A great way to continue training during the pandemic.
