I highly recommend Class Act Dance. Both faculty and students have welcomed my daughter with open arms. Her training is first-rate in all styles, and she continues to be given many opportunities to perform in our community, compete with her team, and grow as a dancer in both skill, artistry, and maturity.
Class Act Dance is a great choice for all experience levels, from beginning babies to teenagers and even adults!

I'm so impressed with the way director Cheryle Armstrong manages this dance school.  Her passion for the kids and their art is a true labor of love.  From community performances like The Nutcracker to recitals and ballet school auditions, to yearly adjudication with RDA, and more, dancers here can find the freedom to dance along with movement education that is good for their bodies.  They offer high-quality instruction that my daughter and I have enjoyed over the years and a variety of ways to participate.

Class Act Dance is awesome! My almost 5-year-old has been going here for over a year and loves it. Ms. Blythe does a fantastic job and she revamped this past year for the Children’s dance program.


The kids are learning so many dances and working on all kinds of age-appropriate choreography each month as well as performing it for each other and the parents. The progression my daughter has made and the love of dance has grown tremendously

My daughters have been dancing at Class Act Dance for 4 years. We were returning to dance after taking several years off, and were received very warmly and quickly made a number of new friends. We have been very happy with the expert training and high-quality productions.


The instructors here are so encouraging and work with the kids to learn and grow into highly and properly trained dancers. I have also recently started taking adult ballet classes, great fitness for your body and your mind!
