Dance Classes - Mission

Mission

Our goal is to offer a variety of dance classes to students from preschool age thru teen. We believe it is important for students to become involved in fun, physical activities and to learn the proper posture and techniques required for various types of dance.

Enrollment

Our dance classes schedule runs for the school year. Enrollment for recital classes is open until mid-December. These classes will perform in our annual Spring Dance Recital in May at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium at UAA.

Our summer dance schedule runs June-August.

Ballet

We offer Angelina Ballerina Ballet classes for our preschool ballet students ages 3-5yrs. These classes are a specially designed program based on the Angelina Ballerina books and are 45 minutes long. Ballet and balle classes are offered fo 6-8; 9-11 and 11-16yrs. They are 1 hour classes that include instruction on technique and progressions of movement.

Anchorage Music & Dance Center's ballet program combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. Our teachers use comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.

As the student grows, classes continue to focus on building a solid foundation in ballet technique with an emphasis on proper placement and safe progressions of movement. All while remaining sensitive to the developmental needs of younger dancers and having fun!

Non-Ballet Dance

For those students who want to explore other types of dance, we offer Hip Hop, Broadway Jazz, Tap, Funk, Modern, Disney Themed Dance & Musical Theatre classes.

Combo Classes

If you just can't make up your mind, we have combo classes! Ballet/Modern, Jazz/Tap, Hip Hop/Modern and Ballet/Jazz.

Who we are

Anchorage Music & Dance Center is celebrating 25 years of private & group music instruction and 10 years of dance!

Convenient

We are a unique school offering quality private & group music and dance classes at one convenient location. Multiple students from the same family can take private or group music lessons and dance classes on the same day. That means parents only have to drive to one location for everyone's lessons & classes. What a time saver for the entire family!

Homeschoolers

We work with most all homeschool & charter schools in the State of Alaska. We are a direct bill vendor which means we invoice the school, so there is no "out-of-pocket" expense for the family!

Our network of schools include: Family Partnership; Frontier Charter School; PAIDEIA; IDEA; Mat-Su Central; Twindly Bridge; Denali Peak, PACE, CyberLynx & Raven.
