Soar on Saturdays

Soar on Saturdays is a dance access program aimed to give young students the opportunity to explore movement over the course of a free six-week dance class. Five different six-week sessions will be offered throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, each featuring a unique style of dance. Classes meet once a week. At the end of each six-week session, students are given the opportunity to share what they have learned with parents, friends, and family at an in-studio demonstration. Class size is limited. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.


The Soar on Saturdays program hopes to:

  • Offer students exposure to a variety of dance styles.
  • Develop cultural literacy for young people to equip them with a life-long love of dance and the arts.
  • Identify highly talented students to be trained in classical ballet and other dance styles.
