MoPeD® or “More People Dancing”
Developed and created by our Artistic Director, Ronn Stewart, MoPeD® is a new approach to movement and body awareness. It is a fun, aerobic and improvisational class that encourages participants to experience the benefits of thoughtful, unchoreographed movement and creates a foundation for each dancer to open up to all the possibilities of movement and style.

Pointe and Pre-Pointe
To be eligible for Pre-Pointe, a minimum of two ballet classes per week are required. To be eligible for Pointe, a minimum of three ballet classes per week are required.  Students will be evaluated on a case by case basis as to their readiness for Pointe.
