The Combination Class is the most popular class for the dancer who is young and just starting out. This is also a good class for the more experienced dancer who has limited time during the evening possibly because of other extra curriculum activities. The combination class provides tap which teaches the dancer timing and rhythm, ballet which teaches them balance, body alignment, and grace. As they get older, we add to the combination class jazz. This is a genre that uses isolations in its movement with upbeat music. These classes are Preschool 1 and 2, Starlette (Kindergarten), Dance 1-2 (1st and 2nd Graders), Dance 3-4, Dance 567, MS Dance (middle school).

The Single Genre Class is for the dancer who wants to concentrate on a specific dance style. As they become more serious about dance the dancer wants to spend more time on each dance style. This improves their progress at a much-accelerated rate. These classes are Ballet 1-2, Ballet 2-3, Ballet 3-4, Ballet 4-5, Jazz/MT 1, Jazz/MT 2, Intermediate Tap, Advanced Tap, Beginning Pointe, Pointe, Acrobatics 1-2, Acrobatics 2-3, Acrobatics 3-4, Advanced Acrobatics/Power Tumbling, Hip-Hop 1, Hip-Hop 2, and Hip-Hop 3, Contemporary 1-2, Contemporary 3-4, Contemporary 4-5.
