Our Non-Performing Dance Academy does not participate in performances and can enjoy dance in a recreational form.    

 

First Day:

Welcome to The Lotus Dance Academy! We encourage you to come try the technique class you are interested in free of charge, so we can determine if that class will be the best fit for your dancer. If you would like to try multiple classes there will be a $15 drop in fee per class (up to 5 classes). Have your dancer come dressed in appropriate dance attire, hair pulled back, and with a water bottle. Prior to participation we require a completed online waiver that can be found below. Please note our preparation classes are designed for children ages 3 and up, our advanced classes are by instructor approval only, and our classes listed as Non-Performing (NP) will not have any performance opportunities regardless of the Lotus Dance Academy program you select. The Lotus Dance Academy is a youth-based dance program for children ages 3 - 17.
