Ballet & Dance Classes


No skating program would be complete without dance classes to improve strength and conditioning, flexibility, agility, and musicality and grace. The Springdale Ballet and Dance Academy, housed at Twin Rinks for 20 years, features a mirrored professional dance studio and digital sound system.


We offer ballet classes in two semesters from September through June, for tots and young beginners (Pre-Ballet) and children ages 6+ (Ballet I, II, & Intermediate), all taught by a highly-qualified Academy Director who loves working with kids. Students may arrange private ballet lessons. Our summer Dance & Fitness program also includes Hip Hop, Martial Arts, Jazz, Fitness, and Ballet/Stretch classes.
