A group of children jump in the airGroove 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!
