Winter/Spring 2020 Youth Classes


**In an overabundance of caution for the health and safety of our students, Danceworks Showcase will not take place on June 13, 2020, and unfortunately will not be rescheduled for the 2020 spring session. We know this cancellation is disappointing for our hard working dancers, teaching artists and families. The entire Danceworks team is saddened by our current situation. We hope our studio families will enjoy the videos for at-home learning and maybe even have a family dance party! Stay healthy and well.

Students in our youth classes will be offered a credit on their account for showcase fees and classes that are canceled due to COVID-19. This credit can be used for any programming, merchandise or performances at Danceworks and it will be good for one year from the date it is issued.
