Recreational Classes

Dear Parents,

Thank you for visiting Legacy Dance Studio’s Recreational dance page and for considering our program.  Since 1998, we have been providing dancers of all ages and abilities with tools necessary to enjoy dance for a lifetime.  Dance provides many benefits for children.  Outside of the social and physical benefits, dance provides etiquette, poise, discipline and an appreciation of the arts.  We keep our instructor to student ratio at 8 or less to help your dancer reach their fullest potential.  We go above and beyond to make sure your dancer has a great time, and learns to love dance for a lifetime!!
