PLEASE NOTE: Ages in the class description are guidelines. Prior experience is the most important factor in determining class placement. Also, some changes in the schedule may be needed, during the dance term. Classes with low enrollment may be canceled or postponed-- advance registration is important! For more information contact Nan Brett at 207-583-6964.


PRIVATE LESSONS & coaching are available with our dance instructors by appointment.


We offer classes that focus on building sound technique in an atmosphere that fosters creative self-expression and respect for individual’s varying interests and abilities.


Our classes will end with a recital currently planned for the evening of Friday, May 3rd, 2024. Our goal for the year-end recital is to not only give family and friends the opportunity to see the dancers in action but also to provide an opportunity for the dancers to experience the joy of performance and the focus and excitement engendered by working toward a concrete goal. Costumes will be simple and choreography will reflect the growing capabilities of the dancers. (Adult students will have the opportunity to participate in the recital fun if they wish.)



We will follow the December, February & April school vacation calendar but dance classes will be held on teacher workshop days and many holidays. We do not automatically cancel classes when school cancels for the weather. Cancellation decisions will instead be based upon predicted safe travel for afternoon and evening classes.


While, obviously, a sick child does not belong in class, we do ask that you keep in mind the value of continuity and consistency in class attendance. Please give the office a call if your child will be absent & let us know if transportation is an issue (we may be able to help!)


Our goal at the Ballroom is to offer high-quality classes, taught by professional performing artists and teachers, at an affordable price. Some limited scholarships and work-study positions are available. (Speak to Nan Brett, director of the Ballroom) Financial hardship should not interfere with a developing dancer’s training.
