The Park District of Oak Park is a place where everyone can dance! We aim to feel less like an intense, competitive studio and more like a community. Through our positive approach in our instruction, dancers are encouraged to take risks, use their imaginations, and express themselves as they grow with our program. Goal: Through a fun and light hearted environment, students will learn dance technique, skills and styles while building relationships with other children in the community. Dancers will gain confidence, poise, and creativity both on and off the dance floor.
