All classes that have been relocated to MYAC will stay there for the rest of the summer session. All daytime classes are still on hold. Evening adult classes (except those that moved to MYAC) are meeting as usual at Danceworks.

Adult classes have on-going registration. You are welcome to join a class at any time! Danceworks has lots of class styles and times to get you moving. Our engaging virtual adult classes are also available for you to take right from your home.

Private lessons are a great way to prepare for an upcoming audition or special event or to give you a boost of confidence on the dance floor.

Sessions can be arranged around your schedule and are available in a wide range of dance styles and levels. All private sessions are with a qualified member of the Danceworks faculty who specializes in the dance style requested. Lesson material is based on your individual needs and moves at a pace that is comfortable for you. Private lessons can be scheduled as a single class or on an ongoing basis.

Please note: During the renovation of our spaces, availability for private lessons may be limited but we’ll be back with full availability this fall.
