Q: What programs do you offer?

A: Our TNT (Teens & Tots) Program offers the following dance disciplines:  Mommy & Me, Early Dance, Ballet, Tap, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, and Salsa.  In addition, we have a Dance Company for our more serious dancers,which provides the opportunity for community performances and travel to local competitions.   

Q: What is the age range and experience necessary to participate in your program?

A: No experience is necessary in any of our programs.  La Luna offers classes for students ranging from age 3 -18 years, in all different levels. It is our goal to provide your child with a class in which they feel comfortable while still being challenged.  If the child is younger then 3 but is potty trained, they will be accepted into the program.

Q: Does my child need to audition to get into the program?

A: La Luna does not require auditions. Class placement is done at the discretion of the program faculty at the time of registration.  Placement is based upon age, ability, and experience. *All children are accepted.

A: TNT Program is a 10 month commitment with classes running from late August through the end of June. A commitment to class attendance is extremely important for a young dancer's progress.
