Our Classes

(scroll down for pricing and details)

Tots and Preballet -ages 2-5

Our youngest dancers get to experience the thrill of dance in our ever popular classes designed just for them.  With just enough structure to keep them learning, and plenty of dancing to keep them twirling, these classes prepare the next generation of dancers to enter the classical curriculum at age 6.


Classical Ballet, Jazz, and Modern -ages 6 and up

We currently have 5 levels of classes for Ballet, Jazz, and Modern training.  These classes are assigned according to skill level, and sometimes require an evaluation in order to be placed properly.  Most new students are able to enter the level within their age bracket. 


Let us help you pick your classes by calling 334-740-5118

or contact us here,

or you may enroll online through the dancer portal.

(some classes require an evaluation)

Tots/Mommy and Me - ages 2-3

The Tots class is specially designed for children ages 2-3 years old, and incorporates creative movement through role play, games, dress up, and lead/follow exercises.  Give your child the best start in dance by starting them early!

Preballet - ages 3-5

Our Preballet classes are designed for 3 to young 5 year olds, and are integral in preparing young dancers to enter the graded ballet curriculum.  We utilize ballet theory in teaching the beginnings of classroom etiquette, body and spacial awareness, and following directions.  Dress up time with free dance at the end of class is their reward.

Beginning Ballet - ages 4-8

The Beginning Ballet class is not a part of the graded curriculum, but rather allows dancers between the ages of 4-8 to learn ballet in a less structured environment.  This class is great for kids who want to dance but are in need of a more casual environment or are limited to Saturday classes.

Graded Ballet levels 1-5

The graded ballet levels begin at age 5 or 6, and dancers progress through the levels based on mastery of technique, work ethic, and attendance. All dancers in the graded levels have Jazz and Modern training to supplement their ballet.   The classes are very structured, requiring adherence to dress code, attendance, and classroom etiquette.  The classes become increasingly demanding as the levels get higher, producing dancers that are not only strong in ballet, but also strong in character and life skills.  

Pointe classes

Pointe classes are incorporated into a dancer's regime when the dancer shows the strength and control necessary to do the work safely.  Dancers are told by the instructor when they are ready to begin pointe.  Dancers transferring from other studios must be evaluated before continuing pointe work to ensure proper placement.

Jazz classes

Jazz is a blend of Broadway style dance coupled with classic technique to create a fun, but challenging genre that is fast paced and technically challenging.  Our Jazz is classic style of clean movements and fun choreography based off the technical training gained in ballet class.

Modern classes

Modern styles of dance are a lost art in most dance schools today, yet most professional companies and nearly all university programs are highly trained in and utilizing the modern style.  We teach it the way the professional do, after the likes of Martha Graham and Lester Horton.

Adult Ballet

Our Adult Ballet class is designed for any adult who wishes to learn the art of ballet, or who desires to get back into it after some time off.  This is a beginner/intermediate level class, and is customized to physical strengths and weaknesses of each member.
