Dance Arts

The Dance Arts Conservatory began in 1976 and teaches classes in Ballet, Modern, Irish, Tap, and Musical Theatre Dance, to preschoolers through adults. The goal of the Conservatory is to provide an instructional setting which fosters all areas of the performing arts. The faculty strives to instill appreciation for dance through professional experiences and instruction shared with each student. We are committed to serving the diverse needs of the community and providing safe, high quality dance instruction. The Dance Arts Conservatory promotes self-esteem and personal growth, and it is our hope that the dance training, discipline, and other skills learned during dance instruction will be with each student throughout life.
