Did you know the Advantages of Summer Dance? It’s well said by Wilton Dance Studio: “Don’t let valuable skills slip away during the lazy days of summer. Now is the time to enroll in one of our award winning summer programs. Younger students can experience a variety of styles of dance classes during our daytime sessions. Older children can branch out with our genre specific Ballet, Acro or Contemporary intensive programs. Students desiring to push their technique (or at the very least, not loose valuable ground made this year) can attend evening ballet classes.”
