Studio One is offering a NEW hip-hop/break/tumble class for kids because the other classes are full. If you have a 5-8 year old boy or girl who wants to learn break dancing moves, cartwheels, bridges, log rolls, etc., and a dance routine to perform at the end of the year, come sign them up today. It's not to late!

The class is not on the class schedule on the website because it's so new so just call the studio and talk with Rose.
