CSA offers a wide variety of dance classes for all levels of ability and experience. For dancers graduating from Combo (Level I), or new dancers ages 7-10, our combo classes provide the opportunity for dancers to explore various styles of dance.  As dancers progress in ability or want to focus on an individual dance discipline, our higher level individual classes focus on technique, interpretation and improving skills. Dancers are placed in the appropriate class based on experience and ability.

Class tuition is based on length of class. Several payment options are available.

  • 60-minute class: $50/mo
  • 45-min class: $46/mo
  • 30-min class: $42/mo

All classes meet once a week.
