The Dance Studio at Lifesong is committed to high quality, professional instruction in a nurturing and encouraging atmosphere. We consider it a privilege to be a part of the lives and journey of our dancers. Whether you’re dancing for fun or competition, our staff is here to encourage you, inspire you and give you the tools to reach your goals, while instilling a love and appreciation for the art of dance! See dance class and level descriptions HERE.

Initial placement in dance classes is determined at registration and is based on the student’s age, experience and ability. Staff will evaluate students during the first few weeks of class to ensure proper placement. In the regular season (mid-August through May), enrollment is open for pre-ballet and combo classes through September in the fall semester and again in January for the spring semester. Enrollment is open for all other dance classes through January, pending evaluation and class availability.
