"My daughter starting taking lessons from Darcie in when she was just 9 years old. Darcie took my daughter under her wing and prepared her for many auditions (singing, acting, and dancing) with great success!


Darcie is a major part of her growth as an artist and we are forever grateful. Darcie is a true triple threat that has so much to offer if the student is willing to learn and put in the work."

Broadway Arts Studio offers the following classes for students ages 8-10: 

Beginning Ballet This is the place to start for dancers who want to explore the beautiful artistry of classical ballet. This beginning level class is beneficial for posture and focus while establishing a strong technical foundation for other forms of dance.

Intermediate Ballet For dancers with more extensive previous ballet training.  Ballet technique will continue to be strengthened with more challenging barre and center floor combinations.

Tap 1 Beginner tappers start with the basics of tap technique and move on to learn fun combinations that develop memory skills, agility and musical know-how.

Tap 2  Dancers build on Tap 1 technique, learning rhythmic tap combinations that require weight changes and more intricate footwork.

Jazz 1  An exciting introduction to the world of classic jazz dance, students will learn proper technique while maintaining age appropriateness in music and style. 

Jazz 2  Building on previous dance experience, students will grow in versatility as they cross-train in jazz styles such as contemporary, lyrical and classical jazz.

Hip Hop Dancers learn this expressive style of dance as they build core strength and learn really cool dance moves. Dancers are also given the tools to develop their own creative style and voice through freestyle dancing. Like all classes at Broadway Arts Studio, music for hip hop classes is free of suggestive or inappropriate lyrics and choreography is cool, hip, and current while maintaining modesty and integrity.
