ABOUT CLASSES

Classes at the Wellspring Dance Academy are taught by dance professionals. Wellspring Dance Academy promotes organic, aesthetic movement focusing on the individual strengths and needs of each student. We do not take part in competitions, so there are no extra costs for costuming or other hidden fees. In each class, students learn solid technique and repertoire. Instruction takes place in a modern, professional performance theater, giving students the taste of the real stage. Classes are small (allowing for individualized instruction for students at all levels) and offer opportunities for social development and individual artistic expression.
