Classes Offered at Pizazz
In our state of the art facility, we train recreational dancers, dancers who are interested in having fun, getting a great workout and learning the great techniques of dance. We also train competitive dancers, dancers who are interested in focusing on different styles of choreography and higher education in the dance field. Our instructors continue their dance education by attending various workshops, conventions and conferences to maintain the latest dance trends.
Mommy & Me
Designed for our little ones who are two years old and who aren't quite ready to go into the classroom alone.

This class focuses on the quality, progress, and improvement of ones movement. Dancers will work on alignment, strengthening and finding awareness in their body. They will learn how to keep a strong and connected center while executing contemporary movement based in ballet and modern techniques.
