About Us

DanceStation

Our main purpose is to teach dance to young people between the ages of 3 and 18. Our goal is to create a fun, enjoyable, non-competitive, and nurturing environment for our dancers. DanceStation dancers are known for their excellence in technique and performance skills. At DanceStation, long lasting friendships are created, and we take great pride in our close-knit ‘dance family.’

DanceStation is a Cecchetti school (member: Cecchetti Council of America). The Cecchetti method is a series of graded classes designed to train the young dancer for professional work. Though not all students are presented for Cecchetti Exams, the curriculum approved by the CCA is a general guide for all ballet classes. Jazz and Tap classes are included in the regular program of classes until the Intermediate level, at which time students may elect to take separate tap, jazz, modern and broadway classes.

Our Instructors

All instruction at DanceStation is given by professionals qualified by certification from a reputable dance education organization (CCA, RAD, ISTD, etc.), by university degree, or by significant performance and teaching experience.

Our Classes

 

Pre-School/K Movement

Pre/K movement classes introduce the 3-4 and 5-6 year old to the world of dance. Pre-ballet, pre-tap, and creative movements are integrated into the class in a fun and enthusiastic way. Basic counting and locomotion skills are built on throughout the year.
 

Broadway

Broadway classes introduce advanced students to the music and movements from all kinds of different Broadway Musicals. These classes are great fun, filled with lots of wonderful music, and have become increasingly popular as the American Musicals have been making a rise again. A Broadway Kids and Broadway Junior workshop is offered (March through June) as an extra performance opportunity for younger dancers.
 

Jazz

Jazz classes build isolation skills, flexibility, and physical sensibility. Turns, leaps, and floor and center combinations are set to pop, jazz, funk, and R and B rhythms. Jazz training is taught throughout the year and is our main technique in this area. Hip Hop is taught as a summer class and usually a guest teacher is brought in for a month during the year.
