Children's Dance Classes

2024/2025 Season

Join us for our fourth season of dance at Monarch!
We offer dance, yoga, and movement classes for students of all ages.

At Monarch we generally place children in dance class based on their grade in school. We find that the behavior and focus expectations children rise to at school are the same as the expectations at dance class. Dancers thrive as they work together to learn, grow, and have fun!

Most of our children's dance classes participate in our annual Recital, though Recital participation is optional.

Recital and Dress Rehearsals will be May 14th - 18th, 2025.

We look forward to dancing with your family!

Tiny Dancer

These classes are for toddlers who are ready to dance without a grownup.

Check "Family Dance & Movement" for classes with a grownup!

Preschool Dance


Our Preschool Classes are appropriate for 3 year olds ready to take on a slightly longer, more focused class through 5 year olds who have not yet entered Kindergarten.

The Ballet, Tap, & Tumble Combo will split time between the styles, teaching the basics and engaging the dancers in creativity and fun. Tumble teaches strength and flexibility to prepare for big jumps and upside down movements!

Please reach out if you are unsure about placing your 3 year old in Tiny Dancer or PreK class.

Elementary School Dance


Our elementary classes are for dancers who will be in Kindergarten-5th grade during the 2024/25 school year.

Combo classes will split time between the two styles, building on the foundations with age appropriate focus.

Ballet and Tap are staples of a well rounded dance education and dancers are strongly encouraged to take these classes!

Jazz utilizes ballet technique, but styles it towards faster, sharper movements. Musical Theatre will also be explored in these classes!

Lyrical is introduced, emphasizing dancing with emotion and flow. Hip Hop teaches confidence, groundedness, and rhythm skills. Tumble helps our dancers build whole body strength and balance!


Middle School Dance


Shout out to our Middle School dancers!

The lyrical curriculum for middle school begins to lean deeper into contemporary dancing, utilizing concepts from modern and commercial dance. Middle Schoolers also have the opportunity to dig a little deeper in ballet. One of the weekly classes will learn a Recital dance and the other will focus on technical training. Dancers who are interested in eventually dancing "en pointe" should take both Ballet Technique and Ballet with Choreography. Pointe, as well as other 6th Grade + options are listed in the section below.

6th-12th Grade Classes


These classes are perfect for

  • ice skaters and other athletes interested in cross training to increase flexibility, grace, coordination, and postural strength! 

  • actors seeking to deepen their movement practice and enhance the embodiment of their characters!

  • students who are new to dance or a certain style or who prefer to move through the material at a more leisurely pace!

  • Siblings and friends who cross the middle school / high school lines and wish to enjoy dancing together!

Pointe Foundations and Pointe Progressions are available to dancers 12+ who take two ballet classes a week and have teacher approval. Please reach out via email to discuss the best pointe options for your dancer before enrolling.

High School Dance


We love the leadership our High School dancers provide for younger students!

High School dance offers many of the same styles as the younger groups, deepening opportunities for learning modern dance and dancing "en pointe." Modern Dance covers a wide range of dance techniques ranging from Graham and Cunningham, through Safety Release Technique. This class will try many styles. Class is taken in bare feet and works in turn out and parallel! It's a great style for utilizing our individual creativity.

Pointe, as well as other 6th Grade + options, are also listed in the section above, including strength classes and beginning ballet.
