About Kidz Gym & Dance...
Our mission is to provide high quality dance instruction to all ages. We teach poise, grace, confidence and creativity, all while inspiring our students to succeed at anything they try all while we share our passion for the Arts.
We are a Ballet, Dance & Acro studio offering classes for ages 2 to adult in a family oriented atmosphere. We offer high quality dance instruction, while teaching injury prevention.
We have a creative and engaging children’s ballet program, Once Upon a Ballet, for ages 3-7 years-old. This is a unique program unlike any other in the area. We facilitate self expression while building confidence!
Our Ballet program classes for Ballet I - VIII are taught by our River Ballet instructors in the Vaganova/Kirov Technique. These classes are taught by Victoria Szeplaki.
Our Intermediate & Advanced level Ballet classes are for the serious student, as our program is a rigorous program and multiple classes per week are necessary for improvement and progress.
We offer classes in the Progressing Ballet Technique given by a Level 3 certified teacher, the only Level 3 teacher in the Tri-state area. This Technique is proven to facilitate the dancer in the ballet classroom by working on specific exercises to enhance their ballet technique. Ballet levels I-VIII are introduced to this technique during their ballet class.
Private lessons in PBT are available upon request.
