All of our dance classes run from about 30 minutes – an hour depending on the age group. All classes are educational, creative and fun! Hence our slogan, “learning to dance, dancing to learn”. Expect your child to fall in love with our staff, classes, and peers all while learning and having fun. We have even had little ones cry when class was over because they didn’t want to leave! All of our classes for our little ones incorporate academics into our dance classes! Classes for our older students teach them technique, genre education, social skills, discipline and respect.

Lyra follows the Aerial Arts program in which students are in a hoop apparatus. Students will work on postures, technique, strength, balances and spinning! All skills needed to be a well-rounded Aerialist (even if just for fun)! We like to call this class, Acro in the air!
The athleticism of cheer and the grace and precision of dance combined! Our Pom classes are a fun, upbeat class fusing the genres of Jazz and Hip-Hop dance as well as Cheer motions.. Students will work on their musicality, balance, arm motions, strength, jumps as well as working with their classmates as a team. Students will get to learn all of this while using fun pom poms! Students will also learn basic cheer stunts used to enhance routines. This class is suggested to be taken with Acro as some tumbling may be introduced in routines.
Our Acro classes combine dance and basic tumbling skills together to create unique and fun routines. Dancers will build strength, flexibility, balance, muscle control and the ability to work with teammates. Everyone learns at their own pace and is challenged based on their abilities! Jazz or Pom are suggested to take with this class for the Dance portion of class. (Level 2/3 required to take Jazz or Pom) *Please note that this is NOT a gymnastics class.

Other Classes not under our Children’s dance program -
Our Zumba classes get packed very early, so make sure you come early to get a good spot! For more info on the Zumba classes, please visit the “Dynamic Trio” or “Melissa Jackson" on FB
Our Hip Hop classes are high energy classes for those that love to dance and move! Dancers learn popular dances to age appropriate music all while having fun! As students progress, they begin to work on showing expression, free styling and creating their own hip hop combinations. In addition to learning more complex choreography, students build skills in breaking, pop locking and gliding.
We accept students until February to participate in our recital. However, in order to be best prepared to perform on stage and to refine technique, we highly suggest that students enroll in September. (Because of costuming, we will be unable to accept students after February that would like to participate in our June recital).
