It is different from other similar schools in several
ways.They have two locations and their instruction alternates
between a "show year" and a "technique year". Every

Dance classes vary in size, depending on enrollment,
size of the room and age of the students. But their youngest
classes are limited to 8-10 students. They consult with the
teacher - because sometimes the number depends on personality
of the class as well as age. Often people think they
need "private" lessons, when, actually, we find that the
group environment is preferable. It allows students to learn
from the teacher as well as be challenged by what they see
others accomplish. One nice thing about having many
teachers is that each teacher is only required to teach what
they know and love.
Most students come to dance once a week. The students
who become more serious about dance attend classes
3-5 days a week. Those students can also audition to be in
one of our performing groups. We have several programs
that include attending competitions and dance conventions.
Dance class is fun, but it is also very structured.
Teachers are very clear about the rules of class. Most of
their teachers have college degrees in dance or equivalent
professional experience. Students who can't seem to handle
the structure are asked to leave. They let parents handle the
real "disciplining." Their student population is very
diverse. All are welcome at Dance Attack.
Dance Attack is very proud of its program. Their students
are accepted into many reputed college dance programs,
even Julliard. Others have gone on to dance on
Broadway or in L.A. Probably their most famous student is
