  • We offer smaller classes often taught by two instructors.
  • Each dancer receives individual attention and coaching.
  • Technique classes are focused on proper placement, form, and injury prevention.
  • We focus on clean, un-stylized technique so that our dancers are versatile and are able to adapt to any style or company they are desiring to work for. Our Pas de Deux classes are instructed by both a male and female teacher so that both dancers receive the correct technique and coaching.

Our full time dancers have recently won and placed in the San Diego YAGP regionals and several were qualified for the New York Finals. Our dancer Mira placed top 12 in the YAGP NY Finals and is now studying at The Royal Ballet School. Our dancer Reid attended YAGP NY Finals, and is now studying year round now at Houston Ballet on Full Scholarship.
