Next Level 

(Ages 13-15)

 

It is with great excitement and anticipation that we announce the start of a new program: Next Level TDC for ages 13 and up!

 

The question of, “What happens next?” has been asked many times since we opened our doors! We love teaching our young dancers, but as our original group of students grow, we have realized our passion to grow with them! This is where Next Level was born.

 

In our first year of introducing this program, we will start small with four teen classes for ages 13-15: Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz and Hip-hop.

 

We are thrilled to introduce this pilot program and explore this extraordinary opportunity in taking our students to the Next Level in their dance education!
