   Our Classes - 

For the past ten years, we have been inspiring many young dancers and have been committed to providing the finest training in performing arts. At StarStruck we consider our classroom to be a place where children can express themselves through the art of dance. We encourage our students to feel free to explore their inner possibilities, while recognizing that they have something to contribute to the learning environment. We strive to provide a fun, family-friendly environment for every child who walks through our doors. 

Since every student is an individual with very different goals and abilities, it is important to realize that each child will progress at a different rate. The number of times per week a student practices will have a great impact on how quickly she progresses, so the staff at SSDS is extremely careful when choosing the correct class level. We encourage all of our students to work hard and become the best dancers they can be, but at the same time, they must work at a level that is comfortable for them. Students are easily discouraged when placed in too difficult a class and they feel they are slipping behind. We want dance class to be a happy and rewarding experience for all.   

With a variety of classes to choose from, we provide endless opportunities for all ages and all skill levels. Find the right style that fits you!


The Song in Your Heart...

"A dance teacher helps their students find the song in their heart, the beat in their feet and a passion for life." The teachers at Starstruck have definitely done this for me...

- Kelly B.
ACRO - This is for the dancer who likes to spend time up-side down! This class incorporates tumbling, flexibility, strength, and increases stamina while using mats. Learn dance and gymnastics (without heavy equipment) all in one.
BALLET - This is the fundamental component in the training of any serious dancer. Ballet includes basic dance steps and positions using the barre and center floor. This beautiful dance form also increases flexibility, balance, control and strength. All ballet dancers have one thing in common: a love of grace, beauty and discipline of ballet.
