2020-2021 Classes

Our dynamic program focuses on the instruction of proper dance technique while incorporating the latest dance trends. Each class includes a teacher and an assistant to maximize the learning experience. Students are placed in classes based on age and basic skill level.

During our 2020-2021 Season, VDP is proud to offer our classes in 3 different ways:
–  In-studio – Joining live in the studio, using all MDH protocols for social distancing and safety.
–  Online –  These interactive classes will be held between the instructor and our dancers via Zoom.  No dancers are in physically in VDP studios.
–  Hybrid –  Your dancer will take class via Zoom with other dancers live in the dance studio.  If there is space in-studio or if the Covid-19 protocols are lifted by the MDH, dancers may transition into the studio for in-person classes.
However you and your dancer feel the most comfortable – We have classes for your family!

The 2020-2021 Season runs from September 10th to June 8th.  A non-refundable fee of $25 per dancer is required for registration.  Prices listed are monthly payments based on a full season of dance, divided into 9 payments, unless otherwise noted.  Have questions or want to visit?
