We are excited and proud to offer to the community our EVERYbodyDANCE program! This program is designed as an adaptation of dance class for students of special needs and all abilities! Evjen is an all-inclusive academy, so if you would like the option for your dancer (of any ability or need) to take one of our weekly class options we are happy to work to accommodate your choice.
Registrations are now being accepted, with the option of personal registration meetings in the studio.
We look forward to dancing with you!
