RECREATION DANCE PROGRAM

Impulse Dance Academy is proud to partner with Southfield Parks & Recreation and bring youth dance classes to the City of Southfield!  We are committed to creating a nurturing environment for students of all ages, and skill levels, to ensure each dancer has a unique and meaningful dance experience. We are dedicated to helping foster a great love for the art of dance in your child, and in our community, and we are passionate about empowering dancers by honoring each person’s individuality.

REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 24TH!

The Recreation Dance Program is designed for students who are just starting their dance journey, those who want to continue their training, or for whom dance is one of many extracurricular activities. In these classes, our experienced teachers introduce proper technique in a fun, encouraging environment. Dancers will learn the fundamentals of technique, rhythm and musicality, and performance skills. All classes perform in the annual Spring Dance Recital. Class placement is based on age and students need no experience. Recreational Program dancers are welcome to take as many or as few classes as they desire!
