Ballet Shoes

Prestige Dance Center offers a variety of dance classes for all ages and levels.  Our goal in the classroom is to provide our dancers with quality dance training and education in a professional yet non-competitive environment. Directors and/or faculty members of PDC will evaluate each student and place them in the class level appropriate to his/her age, ability, and/or experience. Our classes are open to all registered PDC students and non registered students. See tuition info to read more about our drop-in rates and class card option. If a registered student would like to withdrawal from a class, a withdrawal form must be filled out and turned into the front desk.

Contemporary(ages 8+)  is rooted in the fundamentals of modern dance but is constantly evolving over the years to pull from every style of dance, giving the contemporary dancer limitless boundaries.  Contemporary dance can tell the audience a story, it can share a pedestrian moment or experience from real life, or It can even be technical.
