About Elite Feet Dance Studio
Imagination in Motion
Elite Feet Dance Studio offers a wide variety of classes. Our professional staff teach classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary/modern, acrobatics and more. Students may take class in these disciplines starting at 2 1/2 years old. Many of our students keep taking classes until they graduated high school.
Our classes are structured to provide appropriate experiences and training depending on a student’s level of interest. We have classes for the casual student who wants to supplement their extra-curricular activity schedule with a dance class for exercise, artistic expression, friendship and fun. We also have more rigorous classes for students who plan on pursuing dance at higher levels after high school.
Wherever the student’s interest may lay, we have a class tailored for her or him.
