Studio Classes

Offering tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, acrobatics, yoga, and belly dance for ages 3-103!
Parents and students can tailor a dance program to their specific needs through both private and group classes.

Students begin with the Combination Class, which teaches tap, ballet, and acrobatics to pre-school, kindergarten, and school-age children. The Combination Class is specially designed to maintain students' interest, while developing a wide range of basic skills.

Programs for intermediate and advanced students, teens, and adults offer specialized training with thirty-minute sessions in each subject: tap, ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical and acrobatics. Baton, Ballet Technique, Contemporary, and Hip Hop may require special consideration.

Middle Eastern dance (belly dance) is also offered in six-week sessions (age 15 and up).

Refer to the Schedule section for the current class offerings and daily schedule.

Fields Baton Twirling Corps

A baton and marching unit participating in local and regional events.
The Fields Baton Twirling Corps competes in National Baton Twirling Association (NBTA) competitions, and has won many regional and state awards. In addition to twirling, there is a marching unit which appears in local parades, floor shows, and recitals.

Beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels are supported.

Satellite Dance Program

We bring the studio to you! Our satellite dance program is available to bring dance, gymnastics, and theatrics to your school or day care center.
We bring the studio to your door with preschool, kindergarten, and after school programs at your school or day care center. Students learn more when they're having fun, and we're not just clowning around! The satellite program provides a fun, convenient, affordable, and enriching environment for your children. If your facility doesn't have our satellite dance program yet, ask them to contact us!

Instruction is available in tap, jazz, ballet, baton, tumbling, theatrics, clowning, and make-up (face painting). Programs are customized to fit the needs of the facility, and the age of the students.

Annual Recital

All students have the opportunity to participate in the annual studio recital in June.
All students are welcome to participate in the annual recital, the culmination of the year's efforts. Costumes are ordered and purchased in January/February for the June recital.

Recital is an exciting and rewarding time for students, parents, and teachers. It is a team effort which everyone can be proud of!

Recital tickets are free! Each student pays a Recital and Awards Fee, and may receive as many recital tickets as needed for friends and family. A trophy will presented to the student who brings the most guests to the Recital. Be sure everyone signs their tickets, and turns them in at the door!

The Recital and Awards Fee covers the expense of the recital (auditorium rental, custodial fee, lights, sound, decorations, program, advertising, insurance, etc.), and some costs of the Awards Ceremony.
