Dance classes for youth ages 8 & up


The House of Eights Youth Programs provide recreational dance classes for ages 8 – 13, led by instructors who are actively involved in the field as performers, choreographers, and educators. They are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experience with students, at levels catering to both newcomers and seasoned dancers.

Building Dancers, Artists, and Friendships

Although we are not a competitive dance program, our focus lies in delivering outstanding performances, emphasizing structured dance techniques and educating the next generation on the history and terminology of the dance styles they study. In the last class of each term, we hold an in-studio viewing where family and friends can watch a group performance that highlights each dancer’s progress and achievements.


Fall 2024 Term (Sep – Dec) registration will open in the Summer. Stay tuned for more info.

Dancers 14+ are welcome to join our drop-in classes and performance programs.
