What Is Different About Dance Connection?

Besides our proven way of teaching and sharing with each and every dancer, Dance Connection is set apart based on the drive for a LOW STRESS environment for dancers and their parents.

What All Is There To Be Expected From My Dancer?

Short Answer: Smiles & Fun

Dance Connection believes 100% in their judgment of kids’ placement. But these decisions only come when trying out for their competitive company. Our open dance classes are 45 minutes – 60 minutes and are open to any dancer that fits within the ability and age requirements. Every class is invited to be apart of our annual Recital! This past year it was at the beautiful Mesa Center For The Arts. The kids had a blast in their costumes and on the “BIG” stage. This annual show is the sum of the whole year and everything they have learned throughout the dance season. Dance Connection’s number one event is their Dance Recital.

Discover the fun and excitement your child has when they become a part of Dance Connection!
