Groove School of Dance offers exciting and unique dance programming. Groove's focus on self esteem and creativity, rather than competition, is what keeps the company growing. The atmosphere at Groove is family-friendly, whether it be the homemade costumes or the warm, loving teachers who make sure each child feels like the individuals they are. Groove is also one of the first dance studios that encourages children with special needs. Over the years children with autism, down syndrome, and visual and hearing impairment have danced here as well. Read more below to see the wide range of offerings for ages 3-12!

This course offers a balance of challenge and fun in a safe, non-violent environment. The main goal of the program is to provide children and youth with the strength and confidence to avoid conflict. While still including the physical training, this course seeks to develop skills that can be translated into everyday life: the ability to stand up for oneself; discipline and focus; having the confidence to present in front of a group; and self-awareness. In addition to the karate training, once per session a guest artist who specializes in a health and wellness topic or another form of martial arts will be invited to teach an introductory class in their field.
