Showcase Season Classes: Each class has a set curriculum that is taught over the course of the school year, beginning in September and ending in late spring. The instructors assess student growth by specified standards set up for each Level. Classical and age-appropriate music is used to foster learning and encourage creativity. The year culminates with a full-scale recital in the spring to showcase what each class has learned! 

Mini Session Classes: These classes are a great opportunity to try out dancing without the commitment of a big Showcase. We offer mini sessions in the summer and spring.

Sisters AdriElle Hupp & Alexa Wittler have been a part of the dance community in the Carbon Valley area since 2009 providing families in our community excellent dance instruction for a great value. At our beginning we had 50 enrollments and now (2024) we've grown to have over 500 enrollments in our classes with 13 staff members. 

We offer two fun sessions within our program, come dance with us!


Students of Legacy School of Dance will be instructed on proper technique, while focusing on building self-confidence and learning to apply aspects of good character.
