Specializing in Classical Ballet, The Dance Place offers a full range of lessons for dancers aged 3 - adult. Each dance year culminates in a traditional, full-length ballet in May, starring all of our dancers.
While each dancer's progress is ultimately tied to their individual commitment, tenacity, hard work, and natural ability, The Dance Place provides the world-class ballet education necessary for the ambitious dancer to pursue their dreams. Please keep in mind that additional technique and choreography classes are vital for the serious student's development. If you think that you might be interested in pursuing ballet more seriously, we encourage you to begin by signing up for a Cecchetti technique class. Specific class placement is at teacher discretion.
Our range of classical ballet, modern, liturgical, technique and Cecchetti classes are available for almost every age and experience level. Specific class placement is at teacher discretion.
Our Creative Pre-Ballet classes use fun, games, and creative movement to teach our youngest dancers the basics of dance! Ages 3+
Cecchetti classes offer a chance for the focused dancer to strengthen her ballet technique. Each level has a set syllabus of excercises that the student memorizes and perfects throughout the year. At the end of the year, students with teacher permission will have the opportunity to present the exercises for an examiner from Cecchetti USA. These technique classes are required for students going on pointe. Grade placement is at teacher discretion and exams are optional.
Our Liturgical Dance Teams develop a repertoire of dances set to contemporary Christian music and perform at various programs and churches throughout the year.
We offer a selection of classes in Modern dance at multiple levels. Modern classes will also take part in our full-length ballet at the end of the year.
The Dance Place Performance Teams serve the community, spread awareness and appreciation for classical ballet, and provide dancers with additional performance opportunities. Last year, team members performed in lecture-demonstrations for various after-school programs and in a Nutcracker Fundraiser for the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County.
