Junior Spires

Two people dancing together

Our youth program includes classes for toddlers through middle schoolers in music, movement, multimedia, and theatre. The Junior Spires program focuses on building social and emotional skills while introducing your child to a wide variety of artforms.

Kids will have fun and make friends while learning to focus, collaborate with others, and solve problems creatively. Junior Spires classes are designed to improve verbal and non-verbal communication skills, provide an outlet for self-expression, and build confidence and self-esteem.
