Cal Elite’s dance program provides professional dance training to students ages 1 – 18 years. We offer a structured curriculum designed to teach excellent dance technique and form, while promoting strength and flexibility. We encourage commitment, instill grace and fostering a life-long love and appreciation of dance. It is our firm belief that every dancer must start with strong technical training, in the classical dance disciplines. Our emphasis on technique and form begins in our preschool dance program. We take full advantage of all that is wonderful about a preschooler and make sure that our program is sweet, encouraging, and interactive.
Our curriculum is designed as a year-round program. It is our goal to keep your child interested in dance and to ensure that s/he is learning and progressing each week. To meet these goals, we introduce new lessons, music, and teaching concepts on a regular basis. We also incorporate themes, costuming, and props to keep dancers interested and motivated. We proudly host 3 recitals/performances each year and encourage all dancers to participate in these extra special dance events!
