Can I try a class first before I enroll?

How do I know what level my child is/ I am?
If you have never danced before, you are a level 1. If you have previous experience and are not sure which class to take, first pick the right age group, then come in to try a class so the instructor can assess your level and place you in the appropriate class. You can always contact us with further questions.
