It is our purpose to maintain the highest standards of dance training for students of all ages and levels. The curriculum includes beginning to advance training in classical ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, tumbling, our junior performance team “Straight Up”, and our advanced performance company the “Elite Dance Company”. Our classes are conducted and disciplined in a manner keenly associated with proper dance education. We do demand respect and proper behaviors at all times and reserve the right to dismiss any student who upsets the harmony of the school.
Kennedy School of Dance will present its annual spring recital in May.
