Pre-Professional & Advanced Classes

Pre-Professional level dance students know that muscle memory, coordination, strength, flexibility and more can disappear all too quickly over the summer! Our advanced-level “Keep Up” classes are a great way for students to maintain progress gained during school-year classes over the summer months. All classes take place at the Main Campus in Frankfort, IL. Enrollment is based on the purchase of class cards, but attendance of classes is flexible throughout the session. Drop-in classes are $18.
