Youth Dance

The City of Palm Beach Gardens offers dance instruction for ages 18 months through 19 years old. Our classes include ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and more and are taught by experienced dance instructors. Many dance students will participate in our annual dance recital at the Eissey Theatre in May. We also offer some recreation dance classes just for fun! During the summer months, recital classes are not offered; only recreational dance classes.

All classes take place at Burns Road Recreation Center, 4404 Burns Road.
