 Fairmount Center for the Arts offers both a School of Dance as welll as Recreational Dance Programs for toddlers through adults.  

All dance programs support students in developing dance technique along with healthy, disciplined bodies, creative minds, and an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of dance as an art form in a noncompetitive environment.


The faculty at the Fairmount School of Dance strives to create a nurturing and focused environment where dancers are supported to develop their potential as technicians, artists and young adults.

Versatility is vital to today's dancers and Fairmount dancers are encouraged to embrace the many dance styles offered.  Programming in Hip Hop, Jazz, Modern/Contemporary, Tap, and Spanish Dance offer a ballet-based curriculum and opportunities for students to develop skills in choreography and performance experiences.

The Fairmount School of Dance (FD) seeks to train well-rounded dancers with a solid technical foundation who are prepared to face the stiff expectations of the professional dance world. FD offers a progressive curriculum in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, and tap technique.

FD students are required to take ballet technique and students in Levels IV and up are also required to take an additional style of dance.  In order to focus exclusively on technique during class, FD rehearsals are where choreography is rehearsed for bi-annual performances.
