Dance Lessons for ages 3 years- adult

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! View our dance class programs and information.
