Starz In Motion Dance School provides a wide variety of creative and challenging classes for ages 2½ to adult at levels from Beginner through Advanced.

  • Students are placed in class by ability and not by age alone or previous years’ experience.
  • Proper class placement is essential in the continual progress of students.
  • Starz In Motion Dance School reserves the right to make a final determination of each dancer’s level.
  • The insignia of the class is for identification only. The pace of each class is geared to the ability of the class as a whole.
  • To safeguard the physical development of each dancer, it is important that they attend class with students of similar abilities and experience. Please do not sacrifice correct class placement for carpools, other activities.
  • New students with prior experience should call the studio for proper class placement.
  • Although previous ballet training is not required for admission to our jazz, tap, lyrical and musical theatre classes, the technical training of ballet provides a strong foundation for all other dance forms. Students will enhance and improve their progress in other dance styles by attending a ballet class.
