AMPLIFY is the perfect program to step up your dance game, be a part of a team, and perform! Ages 5 - 18 years.
AMPLIFY students enroll in a ballet, tap, jazz, or hip hop class and enroll in an AMPLIFY class. They perform in the Holiday Show, Spring Recital, community performances, and a dance competition!
The goal of this program is to offer an opportunity for your child to develop their dance technique, make friendships, and perform more without requiring the financial and time commitment of a more advanced program, like Elevate.
This is a stepping stone program, and an excellent one for beginner dancers and dancers looking for a team experience! So amp up your dancing and join the team!
Requirements: 2 class min tuition, Amplify Membership, 10 month commitment, No audition required.
We recommend that students interested in joining AMPLIFY have at least 1 year of dance training.
