Youth Program Classes
Whether starting as a beginner or on our pre-professional track, our programs for children are aimed at increasing self-confidence and self-expression. The focus is on guiding and providing the tools necessary for our students to become dancers in the truest sense: through their art, they share themselves with their families and their communities. Truly weaving dance into their lives!
Our Academy offers dance for all levels and ages with additional opportunities training opportunities during our Annual Soul To Sole Festival for tap and multi-form Summer Intensive Programs and workshops.
The Academy also holds an annual End of Year Demonstration (not required) that shows the progression of technique within the year through choreography started each Spring.
Tapestry also believes in sharing the power of dance and offers tuition stipends for students on a need and merit basis. For stipend consideration, please download our Stipend Application and return it in person to front desk or mail directly to .
* Since Tapestry Dance Academy is "starting over" with our Youth Program due to the loss of our Western Trails Blvd Space almost five years ago, it will take a little while to build up to our 30 year Anniversary reputation! Many our our academy alumni have gone on to wonderful professional careers in all forms of dance so stay patient and more classes will be added as soon as possible.
