Ballet
In Ballet class, emphasis is placed on age appropriate training, terminology, classical form and training each individual dancer to reach their personal goals. Our ballet program begins with a movement vocabulary that caters to the young mind and body which is shown in our creative movement classes. Ballet at Encore is taught with a passion and love for classical ballet movement.
Tap
One of the most traditional forms of dance using special shoes to create different rhythms, sounds and patterns. Emphasis is placed on precision, speed and clarity of sounds. Tap is great for developing musicality and coordination skills.
Toddler
Encore Dance Center offers toddler dance classes starting at age 2. We focus on fun, rhythm, and developing motor skills.

What People are Saying

My daughter started dancing here when she was 3, she has loved it from the first day. The teachers are so encouraging, patient, kind, and just the absolute best. Dance has become a part of life. The teachers, kids and other parents have become family. We couldn’t imagine not dancing at Encore. In fact we have contemplated moving out of state and Encore has been the reason we have stayed. I couldn’t ask for a better atmosphere for my daughter to continue her dance education.

The Encore teachers helped me to become a dancer instead of just taking dance classes. Through dance, I have developed my performance skills and my confidence. The friendships I have made here will last a lifetime. Encore is not only a dance studio, it’s my 2nd home.
