Enrichment

"Hawkins has been a 2nd home to our dancer.  Besides the amazing training she has received and the exciting experiences she has been able to take part in, the teachers have instilled in her a great sense of confidence and love for the art form.  We could not be happier that we chose to spend the last 10 years at Hawkins with our daughter!"

Programs for everyone

YOUNG at Heart

Hawkins Children's Classes & Program are designed for children ages 2 to 8 and incorporate fun and imaginative activities as a way to teach dance techniques while still introducing and reinforcing techniques core to each dance genre.

ready to

explore

The Recreational Dancer and Performer has the opportunity to explore different forms of movement and expression across an broad  range of dance, acrobatics and dramatic arts.  Hawkins classes appeal to all ages and experience levels and encourage students to find their artistic self at their own pace, as well as perform on stage pieces they have learned in class.

Dedication and TeamWork

Hawkins Troupes and Companies represent an opportunity for more serious dancers and performers to make a season-long commitment to hone their talent and perform in a team environment.  Hawkins is fortunate to have a team of artistic directors ready to work across the performing arts in ballet, contemporary, jazz, tap, modern, and hip hop dance disciplines, as well as musical theater and parade.
