We focus on challenging students and working with them to reach their goals. Each dancer receive report cards so they know their progress (if the parents want to share). It’s not about a performance or recital but dance skill development with a ballet focus.
These photos are from the PBT exercise which helps for better turns and arm strength. They wore these for 20 minutes.

One of our special classes is World Dance on Monday nights. In the two months that class has been in session, they learned four dances and a choreographed warm up.
Also a German Polka, French Folk, Polish, and even Swedish dances have been a part of this class. Our creative director picks dances based upon the family history of the students. It’s a way of connecting the heritage in dance.
This is one of the ways that makes Cannon Falls School of Dance unique and a very important part of the community.
