Nurturing a Love of Dance! 


Primary is mostly for students age 6 or 7 depending on previous training who learn in pre-ballet, jazz & contemporary dance so they receive a diverse experience that sets them up for success.

Children still very much learn from creative expression and learn to perform a cumulative classical dance by themselves. The skills in this program are challenging yet will absolutely help them feel strong and accomplished.

This level prepares them for Grade 1 which where ballet begins.

Primary sets the dancers up beautifully for classical work.

From the Grandparents:

"Love taking my grand daughter to Kelly's class for little ones on Saturdays. Kelly has so much energy and patience it is incredible and to watch what my grand daughter has learned from her is so much fun. Thanks Kelly for all that you are. You are very much appreciated.

-Misty Cure, grandparent

My granddaughter is thrilled about her dance class, Kelly provides lots of different activities with high energy. The entire class is happily joining in on all the fun. I loved that she does tumbling in the class too. And there are plenty of make up dates to accommodate busy schedules.
