Our Program

Our program is for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and includes instruction in social skills, etiquette and ballroom dancing. Self-confidence, kind behavior, and reinforcement of parental teachings are what we hope to instill in each child. We firmly believe that these classes should also be fun!
