Ballet Tech 

Ages 8+ students. This (non-performing) class is strictly a technique class that is beneficial for all ages! This class was handed down to "T" Marie Mast to continue this training which helped to make many professional dancers. Don't worry if you are not wanting to become a professional dancer taking this class will teach lifelong necessary skills like stretching, good posture, how to strengthen your core, and flexibility as well as being the BEST ballet class you have ever taken! This class was created by "T" Marie Mast's mentor Maxine Williamson and her mentor Lillian Cushing who both were professional ballerinas with exemplary reputations in the ballet world, in their day. Maxine collaborated with M.D. specialists: an orthopedist, rheumatologist and including renowned Dr. Harold Magoun Jr. D.O., F.A.A.O., F.C.A., Ed. (Hon). to add the "floor barre" portion of the ballet tech class. Making certain this is the best and safest training for students of all ages! The music handed down with the Ballet Tech class format; to "T" Marie Mast is the original recorded on reel to reel and transferred to cassettes which are currently used in today's classes to continue the tradition handed down from several generations.

Acro/Tumbling
Ages 2+ students. 
Acro/tumbling is an art form that incorporates the fluid movements of dance with the exciting tricks from acrobatics.
It is “gymnastics for dancers”, where students develop specific strength, flexibility, and technique, to learn how to execute acrobatic tricks, to then be used in dance choreography.
The training students receive in their acro classes helps to reinforce
the technique in all other dance genres.
Acro is now offered in 3-month sessions!
