On Pointe School of Dance

Fall Semester Dance Classes

Registration will open July 13, 2020
3 to 16 years old with adult classes in Ballet, Pointe, and Jazz 

It is said that music speaks to the heart, but dance speaks to the soul. Dance is a performing art of expression, creativity, and discipline. At On Pointe we dance to express ourselves, find an outlet for creativity, and connect our minds and bodies. Some of the other benefits are increased self-esteem, long-lasting friendships, and good health habits. On Pointe has been in the business of encouraging dancers to become the best individuals they can be for 18 years. We believe that a balanced life is the best way to live, so we teach for the love of the art and not competition. Our teachers are well-trained in dance, but more importantly have a passion for teaching. Come see what we are all about.

Our dancers have the unique experience of performing on the PACE Center stage in our end of semester recital, Clara’s Dream (note some classes are indicated as non-performing classes and do not participate in this recital). A $35 costume rental fee is made payable to On Pointe the first week of class. Classes start August 10 and end December 11.  There are no classes on September 7 (Labor Day), October 31 (Halloween) or November 25, 26, or 27 (Thanksgiving Break).

Current and new class descriptions, as well as schedule changes can be below. Contact colleen@onpointeschooldanceparker.com for additional curriculum questions. Please call 303.805.3374 to register by phone.
