Oz: An Original Ballet

We're off to see the wizard! Come watch our ballet interpretation of The Wizard of Oz. Everything from the munchkins to the Wicked Witch of the East is sure to delight. Auditions are after the new year and show is in early Spring.

Performing Group for Elementary Ages

Join our performing group! We perform at festivals, senior homes, competitions and more. 

In Motion - Performance Team for Middle Schoolers

In Motion is our program specifically for middle schoolers. Dancers take technique and performance classes together with a schedule that accommodates their academics.

Royal Blue Dance Company

The Royal Blue Dance Company is comprised of our high schoolers. These dancers work to produce a benefit gala in the Spring. The Royals exemplify how dance can benefit our greater community - and they have fun doing it.


We offer opportunities for students age 10 and older to develop as a dancer through a solo dance. Typically these dances are learned in summer and early Fall.

Teaching Assistants

Students in middle and high school can further their leadership skills by serving as a teaching assistant. Every 2-3 years we offer a teaching academy for those students interested in becoming teaching assistants. We love our teaching assistants.

“…You really pulled off a special show! You should feel very proud of the whole thing. Caitlin really got a lot out of the whole experience. It was a fundamentally important growing experience for her on many fronts. Special congratulations to Rachel on her Zombie dance. It was amazing!!!”

We offer dance lessons in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, pointe, acro, musical theater, preschool dance classes and other dance styles. Located in the East Renton Highlands, our families come from Renton, Issaquah, Kent, Bellevue and Newcastle.
