Elevate

Elevate Dance Program

Grades 6-8

 

Your middle school student will have ample opportunity to learn, grow, join and serve in our Elevate dance program. Along with favorite disciplines that they have grown accustomed to, such as Ballet, Tap and Jazz, they will now have the opportunity to begin precision classes and some students will be ready for pointe classes! In addition, students have the opportunity to join our junior chapter of The National Honor Society of Dance Arts or enter our teacher's assistant training program!

Students in our Elevate classes utilize Dance the Cutting Edge and Acrobatic Arts Curricula.

My girls love dancing at Copeland Queen School of the Arts. They have such talented teachers who strive to make sure the children are having fun as well as learning the skills needed in the dance class. The studio is fabulous! The relationships the students share between them is one that is positive and encouraging. So blessed to be a part of such a wonderful dance studio.
