On Pointe School of Dance

On Pointe School of Dance Semester Classes


Fall dance classes will open for registration in July 2017.

The art, training, and passion for dance come together at On Pointe School of Dance.  We have a 15–year history of providing children and youth the opportunity to explore dance in a non-competitive environment, with teachers who are invested in the personal growth and self-esteem of each student. We love teaching, and approach each student with a whole-bodied methodology to contribute to each individual. On Pointe’s relationship with the Town of Parker has existed since 2006 and continues to fit the needs and desires of the Parker community. We love what we do and want to share our joy of dance with you. 

Our dance classes include the unique performing experience for all dancers ages 3 and up to participate in our spring recital at the PACE Center, December 6. A $25 costume rental fee is made payable to On Pointe the first week of class. 

Classes start the week of August 14 and end the week of December 15.  There are no classes on September 4 (Labor Day), October 31 (Halloween) or November 23 and 24 (Thanksgiving).
