Dance/Movement Program

PMA's Dance Program offers professional, quality instruction to students starting at age 3 and continuing all the way into adulthood. Our classical ballet program forms the core of our dance training, starting with our Ballet 1 classes for early elementary students and continuing all the way to our pre-professional program, where students learn and perfect advanced ballet technique. In addition to ballet we also offer Hip Hop, Tap, and Jazz dance classes in our regular schedule along with special workshops.

We believe that dance is at its core a performing art, and we make sure to maintain a focus on performance in our classes and offer several opportunities throughout the year for students to perform and display their accomplishments. In addition, PMA is delighted to have Metro Dancers in residence with its full performance season, including repertory concerts and full-length ballets.

All group dance classes run from Sept. 5, 2017-June 16, 2018. Enrollments are taken year-round. Please click the links below or scroll down to see listings of our current dance offerings.

We also offer supervised, arts-based childcare after school in our After-School Arts Club, with van transportation available to pick students up from area schools. This is a great way for busy and working parents to get their kids to after-school arts classes. CLICK HERE to see more about the Arts Club.
