What are Discovery Classes?
Discovery Classes are for students ages 3-8. One of our missions at ADA is to develop well rounded dancers. We changed the structure of our discovery level class tuition because we wanted more styles to be more accessible for more dancers. With this tuition structure, your monthly discount goes up with the time spent in classes. At the discovery level of classes, dance is like a buffet, your child should have the opportunity to try it all and see what he/she loves most! We encourage that Ballet, Tap, and Jazz classes (foundational) are first on the menu and then any other classes such as Hip Hop (electives) are like a dessert.
Tuition for these classes is based on the following table:

What is Liturgical?
Liturgical is an open level class to honor Jesus through dancing and share His love with others through performance. Class begins with prayer and a short devotional and the dancers learn a routine. This class performs in the winter and spring recitals and throughout the season at local churches and community events when there are opportunities. This class is FREE to our dance students ages 6+! NEW – Liturgical is not considered an elective and is not required for company dancers for the 2021-22 season. We highly suggest that company students take Liturgical class as it helps dancers to build upon their performance quality and helps to develop a deeper confidence, poise, artistry, and showmanship. You can see a description of all of our classes HERE.
