Explore Dance Program
Ages 5-6 and 7-8
All of the classes in our Explore Dance Program utilize the "Once Upon a Ballet" curicculium.
Once Upon a Ballet is a unique, child-centered approach to teaching dance that is based strongly in child development research.
We meet our students in their world, a world filled with stories, magic and make believe.
Small class sizes and individualized attention mean your child gets personalized learning that meets them where they are.
Cumulative curicculium keeps them learning in a manner that is age appropriate and developmentally sound.
A joyful studio atmosphere that fosters friendships in students and their families alike. Special classes, events and performances ensure there is always something exciting just around the corner!
Every dancer matters at CQSA! They all deserve their chance to shine and we make sure they receive just that.
We aren't training cookie cutter dancers,
We celebrate each child's
