Summer Dance at The Beat

Summer is the perfect time to try out a new dance style, brush up on skills while learning new ones, and have fun at the studio. We offer multiple options for summer dance at the The Beat, including a 4-week session of evening classes July 8-August 2 and a variety of special workshops/boot camps beginning in June.

 

Summer also serves as preparation time for our upcoming Competition Company season. Dancers hoping to join our Competition Company are required to train over the summer. Returning Company dancers will receive summer class placement by teacher recommendation. Invitations will be extended to select dancers in our current Recreational Program. Dancers interested in joining The Beat for the first time and auditioning for our Company should contact us at thebeatdancecompany@gmail.com to schedule a private evaluation.
