We are so excited to be back at it and preparing for what is sure to be another memorable year for our entire dance community!
The SBDC Performance Program is geared towards students ages 3-12 and includes weekly dance classes, pre school, Acrobatic, or cheerleading classes. These classes are full of energy, technical training, artistic inspiration, and physical fitness; all culminating with a performance in our amazing year end recital showcase, in June.
The Performance Program is recreational and does not involve any dance competitions. The program runs from September until June with ribbon testing, watching weeks and small in class performances throughout the year.
