Your child will need your unconditional love, suppport, and consistency in getting to classes throughout his or her arts journey.

Like all great endeavors, learning dance is not a race and cannot be acocomlished overnight, despite what it may look like on TV.

While the journey may not always be an easy one, the lessons your child will learn through dance such as confidence, teamwork, perseverence, leadership, and service, will be carried throughout life.

Marley floors at Elko Arts Academy - Dance Classes

Exceptional Facilities

Safety in a dance class begins with flooring. It's importatnt that even our youngest dancers are on floors built for dance as not just any ordinary surface will do.

Each of our dance classrooms is equipped with a subfloor (floating or foam) topped by Marley - the Gold standard in dance that found in quatity schools across the globe.

Marley is a dense vinyl flooring that absorbs shock and prevents slippage which keeps dancers safe and protects growing bodies.

Make Up Lessons

We understand that life happens and your child may occasionally miss his or her weekly dance classes.

Your child is invited to make up his or her missed class in any style for that age group.

Missed ballet class this week and the other classes don't fit your schedule? No worries.

Schedule a make up class in karate, acro, or music history for the same age group.

Get your full tuition value.

Dance Styles

Not every dance style is a good fit for every kid. Variety is the name of the game at the Academy and we have styles to suit different needs, personalities, and goals.

Ballet is recommended for all students as its skills form the basis for all other dance styles. Keep in mind that finding the right style that suits your kids personality may take some trial and error.
