Welcome to Spark Dance!
We are so excited to begin our third season with Spark dance. As with any growing program, we are always learning and implementing new policies and ideas to help our program run more smoothly. We appreciate the feedback from our dancers and look forward to an awesome 2019-2020 Season!
Dance is an Art: The discipline of dance will be taught as an art and will not have emphasis placed on competitive teams, but rather grooming a dancer as an artist. We plan to offer audition based performing companies in 2020. The goal of our program is to have our Senior Company choreographing and presenting showcases of their own work. This is a whole other level of training to prepare them for whatever they may want to pursue!
Affordability: Dance can be extremely hard on the pocket book. Because of our non-profit status and the fact that we have a performance space "in house," we are able to offer dance without as many of the extra fees.
Excellent Teaching Staff: We are dedicated to offering high quality dance education and can ensure that our teaching staff reflects those standards. We are thrilled with the teachers we currently have on staff and look forward to building a larger team!
Costumes, Music, Movement: At Spark we strive to maintain high standards when it comes to our student policies and code of ethics. Discretion will be used when considering costuming, music, and movement that is age appropriate and displays a respect for the dancer as an artist.
Confidence and FUN: As with any of the programs we offer at Spark, our goal is to uplift our students, help them to build confidence, and add joy to their life! The arts add color to life and that is why we do what we do!

Free Trial Classes:
New students are welcome to do a free trial in any class that they are interested in taking. You do not need to register for your trial class, just come in the day of class and sign in at the front desk.
The goal of our PreK classes are to introduce students to dance in a fun, creative, and imaginative way. We will utilize props and creative movement in our teaching. Dancers will be introduced to primary ballet technique and rhythmic timing through tap.
We offer combo classes for dancers PreK through age 8. Combo classes allows your student to learn basic ballet technique and rhythmic timing through tap. After students turn 7 they are also introduced to Jazz technique. Students will do a ballet warm up and floor work and then spend the second half of class learning tap or alternate each week between tap and jazz. This gives students exposure to and experience with multiple styles and prepares them to go on and take specific classes as their interests and abilities grow.
As an art and performance based studio we view ballet as the basis of all other styles of dance. The classical ballet program at Spark is lead by Miss Maria Eugenia with the assistance of Lacey Flowers. We strive to provide the best in training and technique. Each year students will participate in a mid-year revue and a Spring Ballet. Students younger than age 8 may need to be evaluated to determine if they should enroll in Ballet level 1 or a combo class in preparation for level 1.
Students must be at least 9 years old and have a minimum of two or three years of ballet training.
Dancers must be at least 8 years old.
