Parent Information


Grace, Grit, and Excellence!

Give your child the confidence to dance like everyone’s watching!

There’s so much more to dance than beautiful movement. At All About Dance! by Kristen, we are committed to providing high-quality dance classes to improve coordination, encourage positive self-image, and provide kids the freedom to express themselves. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn and enjoy dance regardless of their abilities, age, or level.
