Can I observe my child’s class?

Yes. We have parent viewing week once per month so you can observe your child’s progress throughout the year.

What if my child has never danced before?

That’s ok. We offer classes for all age ranges and levels. There are some classes that are more beginner friendly than others. Give us a call and we can discuss your child’s interests and the classes that are suitable for your child.

What if my child wants to do more training? Are there other opportunities for advancement?

Yes, there are. The Body Expressions Dance Company, the BXP Dance Crew and the BXP Company in Training are great ways to advance your dancer’s training. With more intense weekly classes and the opportunity to travel to conventions and workshops learning from other master teachers, your dancer’s training will progress rapidly. Please view the Advanced Training page for more information regarding these opportunities and their requirements.

Do you offer private lessons?

Yes. We offer semi private and private instruction.  Private lessons are perfect for brushing up on your dance skills before an audition or just wanting to improve technique.  We customize our private lessons according to the student’s specific needs.  We have several packages to choose from.  Please call our office or stop by the information desk to pick up a semi-private or private lesson packet.
