Continuous Children's Dance Program
The Continuous Children's Dance Program for students ages 3 to 18 is a comprehensive, nine-month program with classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, hop hop and poms. Highly qualified instructors implement an established dance syllabus for beginning through advanced level classes designed to grow with your child. The Student/Parent Handbook provides detailed information that every dance student and parent will need to know.

Continuous classes begin at the end of August and run through the beginning of June. Students must register by Dec. 1 to participate in these classes. Registration for Fall 2014 begins July 28. The Continuous Dance schedule will be posted on July 7.  To sign up or for more information, call the Dance Office at 303-326-8308.

Registration and Class Placement
Registration for the Continuous Children's Dance Program is done through the Dance Office. Children are placed in classes based on age, ability and technique level. Classes are arranged sequentially so that students progress through the program safely, without gaps in training, and are well prepared for the next technique level. Instructors may recommend a transfer to another class (up or down a level) based on ability and the best interest of the student.

Performance Opportunities
Aurora Dance Arts offers a variety of performance opportunities for students such as annual recitals, a bi-annual performance of "The Nutcracker" and two Performing Groups. The Performing Groups showcase their talents throughout the year at various venues. Participation in production shows and Performing Group are by audition only.
