All of the instructors in Music for Everyone are passionate about music and strive to nurture that same love of music in their students.
Brooklyn Park Dance
The goal of our program is to teach the fundamentals of dance in a welcoming environment for all ability levels. Self-esteem is more important than perfection. We focus on fun, friendship, and footwork.
Our class offerings include
Tap, ballet, jazz with an infusion of lyrical and hip hop
Boys only tap and hip hop
Tiny Dancers: preschool to 2nd grade
Intermediate dancers: grades 3 to 9
Senior dancers: grades 10 to 12
Adults: ages 18 and up
Why Brooklyn Park Dance?
Because dancing is fun for everyone!
Age not ability
As fun and friendship are two of our primary goals, dancers in our program do not audition for class placement. Our dancers enroll based on their current grade-level. This practice allows friends to be in class together and for new dancers to feel welcome starting at any time.
Do you have a child that wants to be a dancer, but also a hockey player, ninja, gymnast, softball player, actor, musician, or mathlete? Limited class time and only one recital weekend per year means there is still a lot of room in the schedule for all of their other interests.
Full recital experience
Learning to dance is a wonderful experience, but ask many dancers what they like best and it's the sparkly costumes! We work hard to put together a themed recital full of beautifully rehearsed dances. Our costumes are age-appropriate and affordable and our show is well produced. It is a fun weekend when our dancers get to be center stage and receive the applause they've worked so hard to earn.
Program structure and registration
Our classes generally meet once per week from September through April. Classes are 35 to 45 minutes in length based on age level. Please see the Get Up and Go brochure for complete class listings and fees. Register online or by calling 763-493-8333.
