Dance Academy

ParishEXTEND Dance Academy is proud to offer a wide range of classes for different skill levels.

Each level progresses upon each other leaving no gaps in the dancer's education. Each class level is structured to be developmentally appropriate. Students who fall below the grade levels listed may enroll in a higher level class with permission from the instructor.

If you have questions or are a new student, please contact Jessica Robinson who can assist you with class selection.

Although we may suggest various classes to dancers, we do understand that students and parents may choose not to follow our recommendations. If this is the case, please make the staff aware of your situation, and we will gladly accommodate.
