Texarkana Dance Academy's Recreational Dance Program provides students with a variety of genres to explore while physically developing the body in flexibility, body placement, core strength, movement and coordination.

Each class performs in our annual recital and purchases a costume. All classes except ballet perform at Mistletoe Fair. Students are encouraged to enroll in multiple classes to hasten advancement and develop diversity in dance styles.

  • CLASSICAL BALLET is the foundation of all dance and is the building block of our program. We stay true to traditional ballet technique, vocabulary, grace and expression.
     
  • JAZZ, and HIP HOP classes include current and popular styles emphasizing the athleticism of dance and confident stage presence.
     
  • TAP and MUSICAL THEATER classes focus on rhythm, musicality, and personality.
     
  • CONTEMPORARY dance classes explore the emotional side dance relying on self expression through movement.
