Youth Private Lessons

Level up with one-on-one attention!

Focus on whatever you want to learn, at your pace and schedule, with customized private sessions. Our instructors offer lessons in a wide range of dance styles, as well as voice, acting, ukulele and even personal training!

Maybe your child is new to performing arts and wants to build up a technical foundation before joining a group class. Or perhaps your child is training for a dance competition or auditioning for a school musical and could use a little extra coaching. Or maybe you just need a specific time to suit your busy schedule. Whatever the goals, we’ll tailor each session to help your child reach them.

Dance Technique

Perfect your pirouettes, sharpen your jazz walks, brush up on your tap sounds…Maximize your technical progress with individual attention in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap or any of the other genres we offer. We’ll match you with an instructor who will meet you at your level and take you as far as you want to go!

Dance Fitness/Training

Schedule a cardio dance party at your pace and convenience. A great option if your child would benefit from extra breakdowns of some of the most common moves, or if they need modifications due to injuries, etc. Or, tackle fitness goals with one of our certified trainers, who have experience working with both kids and adults. Whether you want to build strength, increase stamina, improve flexibility or all of the above, we’ll lead you through targeted exercises and send you home with a personalized workout plan.

Ballet

One of our most popular private lesson options! We’ve worked with beginners who wanted to build up a foundation before joining a class as well as experienced dancers aiming to fortify specific technical skills. Through targeted exercises and personalized feedback, our skilled instructors will help you bring your ballet technique to new heights!

Choreography

Preparing for an audition? Gearing up for a dance competition? Or maybe you’re simply looking to learn a choreographed routine for fun. Whatever the circumstance, we have instructors who specialize in creating choreography to suit your chosen music, reflect your personality and cater to your skill level.

Custom choreo is a separate flat fee ($250 for up to 4 minutes for a solo or partner routine; additional fees apply for longer songs or larger groups) because we create the routine on our own time so you can focus on learning the steps during lessons. If you don’t like any of the moves we come up with, we’ll rework those for no additional charge. Most of our clients who opt for choreographed routines generally end up taking 2-3 private lessons to learn the steps and another few lessons to polish them. We film at the end of each session so you can practice at home.

Voice & Music

Amp up your vocal technique! Whether you’re working towards landing a role in a musical, or you simply want to hit the right notes when singing in the shower, our professionally trained voice teachers can help you achieve your goals.

NEW in 2024: Learn to play ukulele! This small, inexpensive instrument is perfect for kids starting to explore their musical interests, or those who want a portable option to accompany themselves while they sing! Kids coming straight from school can use one of our instruments at the studio if they’d rather not carry their own from home.

Private music lessons are offered in 30 or 45 minute sessions. Contact us to schedule. Students in our afterschool program get a 10% discount!
