Virtual Classes

We are excited to be able to offer virtual classes for a limited group of students who wish to continue to take dance. At PPAC, we believe that is important for your student to continue to have a creative outlet and physical activity during a time of social distancing. These classes will allow your students a sense of normalcy and give them the opportunity to engage with other dancers who are in a similar situation. We have created a curriculum that will ensure your students grow in their dance education.
