After School Programs

Innovations Dance Academy (Ages 3-18)

Innovations Dance Academy is a production based dance academy.

We offer classes for dancers 3-18 years old.  Ballet, Jazz, Creative, Modern, Lyrical and Tap classes are all available.

The entire studio will participate in our Broadway style production at the end of each year.

Productions have included The Secret Garden, Cinderella, Where the Wild Things Are, Peter Pan, The Little Match Girl, 12 Dancing Princesses and many others.

Innovations Dance strives to empower each dancer with a solid technical foundation while working to instill the principles of discipline, integrity, and modesty in their everyday lives.

Up With Kids  (Musical Theatre)

The Up With Kids program emphasizes “All Star” acting, where every child is a star. Scripts are tailored to accommodate the students, ensuring that every child is cast in their own unique role with speaking lines and a personality to develop.

Audition techniques are taught, but auditions are never held for our productions. We promote a spirit of cooperation and teamwork rather than competition.  The All Star acting approach promotes a positive experience for every student, where confidence and self-esteem are developed through involvement in the performing arts. At Up With Kids, every child is a star!
