Si Views Dance Program offers a high level of professional instruction with a strong emphasis on technique, fitness and fun. Each student receives individual attention, initiating the joy and appreciation of dance and music. We allow each student the freedom of creative expression in a nurturing and motivating environment designed to enhance self-esteem.
Si View Dance is a year round program
The fall quarter runs from late September into early December. In this quarter students dance vocabulary is developed along with preparing for an informal Holiday Concert. We make fun simple costumes and perform at the Holiday Bazaar at Si View Community Center scheduled in early December which concludes our quarter. It is a fitting end to the beginning of the holiday season.
Attention Si View Youth Dance Classes parents/guardians:
Instructors request students come to class dressed in the following attire:
Students enrolled in all dance classes are eligible to participate in our Spring recital tentatively scheduled for Saturday May 17th. A Recital Fee of $55 (which includes costume) must be paid by check (payable to Sara Werner) on the first day of class.

If you miss the first day of class, the last opportunity to be fitted for a recital costume will be Monday, January 27th. Please note that the final class is currently scheduled for the week of May 5th, if instructors feel an additional class is needed in preparation for the spring recital then an additional class will run on the week of May 12th.
