Lizzy has many years of training, a passion for the art of dance, and a strong desire to give students a positive, professional experience. Your child will have the opportunity to learn and have fun while gaining greater self-esteem and self discipline.

Class sizes are kept small to ensure that each dancer gets the individual attention he or she needs. We are committed to making sure our students enjoy their experience in class each week and look forward to returning the next week. Come dance with us. You’ll love it!
