REACH FOR THE BARRES  is a studio specializing in the development and needs of today’s young dancer with non-competitive nurturing dance classes gently encouraging your child’s self esteem with age appropriate expectations and the joy of dance. We are focused on putting the FUN in Fundamentals and the Foundations of dancing!

Our program is based upon multiple-class lessons which we believe offers the best opportunity for children to learn, improve upon and combine new skills and routines, develop their dancing abilities and improve their mind, body and soul. We focus on teaching the whole child with developmentally appropriate programs, as well as age appropriate dancing, music, and attire.  Our children grow up so fast, and we want to remove the pressure and competition, and give them more moments, to create, explore, and dancing like no one is watching.

Our mission is to offer an alternative to traditional dance studios, one that looks at teaching from an innovative and conceptual approach with dance education, keeping it simple and stress free, and allowing kids to just be kids, opening a door for dancers to fall in love not just with the performance but with the dance itself.


Dance Classes, Camps, Private Lessons & Parties


Our main season runs like a 9-month, academic calendar, which simply means students enrolled in September are guaranteed their spot in class the entire 33 weeks of our season.


Dance Camp at Reach for the Barres is the number one destination for summer and holiday camps for kids ages 3-14. Each camp session has a special theme each week as we offer 3-day and weekly options!
