Our new standalone schedule will offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in classes and perform in a final in-studio showing. In addition, we are offering dancers that are interested the opportunity to return and perform again in the Sweet Pea Festival held on August 5, 2023.

Mini DUBS will take place June 12-23, 2023, and run Monday-Friday from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. This two-week intensive is a unique opportunity for dancers to explore a variety of dance forms focusing on technique, artistry, musicality, and expression. Along with ballet technique, dancers may have modern, character, mime, injury prevention, nutrition, and body conditioning.
