Ann Parsley School of Dance (APSD) is excited to offer a Homeschool Dance Program. This program, focused on the art of dance, is formulated with the homeschooler in mind. Our quality program offers meaningful and enriching experiences, using dance to cultivate emotional expression and self-esteem, while developing lasting friendships. In addition to teaching the history behind the steps and the movement used in dance, our supportive and professional staff provides dance training that enhances balance, coordination, rhythm, and body awareness. Daytime classes for ages 5 - 12 are offered at special rates, and are designed with a parent inclusive open door policy. We take pride in nurturing physical confidence, grace, and athletic strength in young people. 

This 10-week session focuses on ballet technique and development. Students become acquainted with dance vocabulary and dance history. Worksheets and bi-weekly crafts are provided throughout the session. This program is excellent for those continuing on from other sessions, or for those new to the program.
