Dance – Tap and Ballet

Grades K through 2nd -$260

Tap Ballet is a combination class split with 30 minutes of Tap and 30 minutes of Ballet. This is a great class for the young dancer who wants to learn the fundamentals of both Tap and Ballet. Classes touch on both warm-up and technique of both disciplines, as well as proper arm, leg, and foot positions. Studio Go’s Tap Ballet program is a progressive program that introduces more complex technique and patterns of movement to challenge the elementary student. These classes are perfect for both beginners and the more serious dance student. Our teachers are prepared and evaluate where each student is at to make sure that all students are both comfortable and challenged at the same time.

Chess – The Knight School

Grades 1st through 5th – $300
This revolutionary, party-based approach to chess has had amazing success—with an all-time record of 51-0 against traditional chess programs in school vs. school play—because of our unique and unprecedented educational philosophy, “the chess party.” Our unique model has swept America because it has never been seen before: we simply invite everyone from the brand new beginner to the highly advanced chess player (grades 1-5) in your school to join our school chess team and we use only super-fun teaching methods such as super-fast, chess clock-slapping chess games, zany chess videos, a strict bully-free environment, silicone wristbands for tactics mastery, chess puzzlers for candy, driving music, hilarious tactics-lesson videos, and Mardi-Gras bead chess tournaments each day we practice.
