The strength of S.P.A. is based on strong ballet training. We teach Creative Movement, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, and Modern. We encourage the dancer to study ballet always, and to add other dance forms as interest increases.
For everyone's benefit, we hope you will take an active interest in your child's dance education. We invite you to observe classes and come to us with any questions or concerns.
