We offer our Kaiser Kids Dance classes everyday Monday through Friday giving each family the opportunity to find the class that best fits their family schedule
We believe dancers should be versatile and be able to explore the various styles without having to come to the studio everyday so we ’ ve structured our schedule for dancers to attend multiple classes back to back
Performance & Technique classes are based on level, not on age When scheduling, our Customer Care Champions will be mindful of the students registered in each class so that their aren’t any extreme age gaps By offering classes based on level, dancers receive instruction that is geared for their level so they can reach their goals!
