Christine Rich Studio Life On Wintery Day

Dance lessons for children should be the balance of structure, fun and warmth for the developing child.

Christine Rich Studio Dance Academy provides all of this in a safe, harmonious, and yes, peaceful environment for children and their families. The above footage was taken on one wintery evening and shows the pure love that dance can provide to all of our students when you find the right dance studio.

Dance is a rare opportunity to blend physical activity with mental stimulation through music and brain wave development through the artistry of our dance syllabus.

We offer dance classes starting at age 15 months old through college level. From our wonderful beginners to our talented and hard-working pre-professional dancers we have a class for everyone.

Our students have been accepted into every major ballet school in the country and several are dancing professionally, acting in Hollywood or dancing on Broadway. And our students who didn't pursue dance as an adult, are academic all-stars going to every top school. This all comes from our special programs.

Ballet and pointe, jazz, acrobatics, hip hop, tap, Modern, Acting, dancer's Strength class, Irish, Fairy Tale Ballet and Tap for ages 3-6, Dance Movement for ages 2 and younger, and more.

Your child deserves your time and attention to bring them to weekly dance classes because to watch your child blossom, well, there is no better after-school activity around.

If you are a teen aged 14-18 years old, in high school, and love to dance, but not interested in formal dance training, check out the teen dances on Saturday nights at Breathe Nightclub where you can express your creative movement side!
