Dance Lessons

At the Hoffman Estates Park District, our goal with the dance program is to allow each student to experience all elements of dance: technique, creativity, confidence, coordination, grace and rhythm. We strive to develop self-esteem and self-discipline in each of our students; while motivating students to believe that with determination and hard work you can accomplish anything you set your heart on! Click here for dance class information.
