Whatever your level of dedication to dance, there is fun for everyone in every class! Beginning at age 6,
the Level system is implemented as a guideline only. 6 year olds must have at least 1 year of dance experience to join level 1. Incoming students will need to be observed in order to place them at their appropriate level.
Baby Ballerina - 30 minutes - This tiny tot ballet class offers an opportunity for 2 year olds to come into class without a grown up. Students will learn basic ballet through creative dance techniques. This class will perform in our annual recital. (appropriate for 2.5 years by Dec. 1st)
*Please Note that the age guideline for classes is only a guideline.
Students can be tested by Miss Brianna for class placement.
Recommendations are given for each student at the completion of each school year.
Our Waiver and Release form must be completed for
each student prior to attending class.

Programs and Classes
The goal of the CORE Program is to train students to gain pristine technique, while also offering a well-rounded, complete dance curriculum. The CORE curriculum has been set up so that students have enough time in the studio to perfect technique, musicality, choreography, strength, flexibility and skills while learning multiple styles of dance. With registration into the CORE program comes a commitment that must be upheld by both the students and the parents. Dance Me strongly believes that all students who intend to become the best dancer they can be should be trained in multiple styles of dance. We offer this opportunity at an affordable price.
The Program begins with students 6 years old and continues through age 18; although students may begin in the CORE Program later, as long as they have been given the OK. The intention of starting this young is that students are encouraged to make the CORE program "the norm" from the very earliest stages of their dance training. As students get older and more advanced, they will progress through the program.
The CORE Program has required classes that a student must take to benefit fully from the curriculum. After a student is enrolled in the basic CORE requirements, they can choose to add classes onto their program for very discounted rates. Students may also choose the "Dance Me All the Way" Program where students will enroll in all of the classes at their level at a package rate. Dance Me offers this program at a great value. The reason for this is that it is an incentive for students who really want to learn and grow to have this opportunity. Student must remain dedicated to their classes to be in CORE. At the beginning of the School Year dancers will be required to sign the CORE Pledge as an agreement to stay dedicated. Being a part of the CORE program is a privilege, not a right.
Having gained a Masters Degree in School Counseling, Miss Kathy understands that all students learn differently.
She leads the Dance Me Staff with patience and flexibility, creating an environment in which
all students are provided with the tools to blossom individually.
RECREATIONAL VS. CORE
Dance Me differs from other dance studios in that we offer 2 different tracks for dancers depending on their level of commitment. Dancers can choose from our Recreational Program or our CORE Program. Dance Me is focused on providing a well-rounded dance education no matter what level of commitment you decide. Technique and performance skills are a main focus, and we offer plenty of opportunities to explore both of these aspects no matter what program you are in. We believe ballet technique is the foundation on which all dance is built, and is the key to success in the dance world. Although we build ballet technique into all styles, we strongly recommend all dancers take at least one ballet class in order to ensure a well-rounded dance education. Scroll down to read more.
In addition, Dance Me has a Competition Team which requires either
an audition or an invitation to become a part of. Please read more here!
