Welcome to our Enrichment Dance Program. Footworks Dance Company offers a wide variety of class options for ages 6 - 19. Enrichment classes are recreational, meaning they are non-competitive, while still offering the same great technical training from our exceptional staff of instructors. Our classes are a graded program, therefor, we build on skills from one level to the next. We teach a specific skillset at each level of dance or tumbling. This program is an awesome choice for "ALL" dance enthusiasts. If you are looking to build your technique, upgrade your performance skills or find a fun social circle of friends in a creative and athletic outlet, this is a perfect choice. You can learn a variety of dance styles or just take 1 class. Our program is terrific for pom and dance team dancers and future dancers. Our program is also a great enhancement to those involved in theatrical programs at school. Our graded program has 6 levels (plus our shooting stars level) and dancers usually spend a couple of years at each level in order to achieve full mastery of the level. We invite you to join us in fun, friends and dance in the FDC Enrichment Program!
