As we have transferred to online learning, our school has embraced this united effort that allows us to continue to connect with all of our students virtually for private lessons and group classes. While we look forward to being together again on campus, we continue to provide high quality arts education to the best of our abilities online.

2020-21 Trudl Zipper Dance Institute Registration for all students begins August 10

Note that we have modified our offering of group dance classes to adapt for successful online learning by limiting the total number of class hours per week.  We have also provided additional “Plus” classes to supplement the curriculum for more advanced dancers.  This will reduce screen fatigue and allow us to provide more flexible tuition rates.
