Recreational Program

AAD’s Recreational Program is designed for anyone who loves to dance age 18 months to 18 years. All dancers are welcome – with no audition required. This is an ideal program for dancers exploring any genre of dance without committing to a team-based program. Dancers may sign up for an entire session (fall or winter/spring) OR drop in any time throughout the year. All classes age 3 and up participate in our super-fun annual recital. The curriculum was designed by AAD owner, Jessica Goldman, and Recreational Director, Tori Smith, and has been recently re-imagined to focus on building up the whole child. In addition to developing body awareness, movement, musicality, rhythm and fundamental dance technique, each class is rooted in love, and intended to create a strong sense of identity and boost self-confidence. Even though the program is class (vs. team) based, each teacher cultivates a wonderful sense of community within each class. Meet us on the dance floor and join the FUN!


(Age 18 months – 4 yrs)

** Only some classes participate in our annual recital

AAD’s Tot program is a beautiful introduction to dance that cultivates LOVE and JOY for the art form! In this stage of your little one’s life, we focus on building the fundamentals of body awareness, movement, musicality, rhythm and basic dance class structure and etiquette. AND, in those early developmental years it is SO important to start building a strong sense of self-identity and teach kiddos to believe in themselves. Every class is rooted in LOVE and boosts self-confidence. Your tots (and parents/caregivers too) will enjoy a pop of adrenaline and have a blast while doing it! Drop in any time or sign up for a session-long class. LEARN MORE by clicking on each link below.

AAD Kids classes build upon the fundamentals from the Tot program and are also perfect for beginners. Your budding dancer will experience the JOY and LOVE of dance with an introduction to technique. These super fun classes will build your dancer up and inspire them to believe in themselves! With duo-genre, single-genre, and specialty options – these classes are a wonderful way for your dancer to explore and discover what they love best.
