We’re heading back to the stage
In March we, along with the entire country, were forced to temporarily shut our doors and leave the stage. Now, seven months later, we are thrilled to be able to open up our doors and take the stage again. Join us for a wonderful 2020-2021 season as we celebrate more than ever the love of dance. We can’t wait to share it with you.
