Dance Foundations

Dance Foundation provides kids a fun and non-stressful atmosphere where they can learn to love dance. We encourage students to grow as dancers while meeting new friends, gaining coordination and learning self- discipline. Dancers will learn to express themselves creatively and gain better coordination. As a non-profit program run through the Silver Springs Community Association, we are able to keep our class sizes small and prices low. Throughout the years we will give the dancers the basics they need to know in order to continue dancing and performing in the future. We love to dance and hope you will too. 

Dance Foundation runs on a year basis, September – April  with registration opening  August 1st of each year.
