Classes listed under KNDAN are activity based classes geared for the recreational dancer with little to no dance training. Classes listed under DANCE are for students who have previous dance training, accelerated dancers, pre-professional dancers and dancers who wish to pursue a career in the dance field.

Students are encouraged to speak with a faculty member regarding placement in upper level dance classes and/or any classes beyond the fundamentals level.
