Classical Ballet

The Classical Ballet Program at the Ridgefield School of Dance is based primarily on the Balanchine-style of technique. Classes are tailored for the students to progress though levels appropriate to their age and ability.

Jazz & Contemporary

The Jazz Program incorporates a contemporary jazz style, that changes and evolves with new trends.  Our jazz instructors are professional dancers and bring a very exciting blend of teaching styles and choreography to the studio.

Children's Ballet

Ballet classes are available for children ages 3 and up. Pre-ballet combines creative movement and play to build the foundation of a child's love for dance. Classes enhance young dancers' innate joy in moving, and the confidence and self-esteem they gain from dancing.

It is amazing how much of a difference dance can make in the life of a child.

Each year, The Ridgefield School of Dance presents a winter and spring performance in which all of the students are encouraged to participate.  Both events include a classical ballet and a highly choreographed offering from the Jazz Department (jazz, contemporary, lyrical, tap and musical theater dance).  Our Spring 2017 performances of Les Sylphides and Carnival of the Animals took place on June 17th and  June 18th at the Ridgefield High School.  The show included the classical "Les Sylphides", the contemporary new choreography from artistic director, Jessica Boelts "Untitled", the comical "Carnival of the Animals" with original concept and choreography by Ms, Boelts and the jazzy "Together Forever" presented by the jazz department.  It was an enormously fun and successful performance.  Make sure to join us next December for the Nutcracker Ballet!
