School Year Dance


Emmy LaVallee: Director (visit our Coaches & Staff page for bios)

Tri-Star Dance offers unique dance classes that allow parents to be in the studio to watch their children take the lessons and view their progress.  We are focused to providing a dance education based on strong classical techniques but also gives the child room to develop their own style and to enjoy dancing.  We do not have a strict dress code, we just ask our dancers to wear form-fitting dance/exercise clothing.

Our dance recitals are stress-free and we do not charge for individual tickets to our annual recital.  We only charge a nominal performance fee to cover the cost of the auditorium and our costumes are always age appropriate.  Our recitals usually last 3 hours long with no dress rehearsal the day before.

The curriculum starts in late August but you are welcome to join us (depending on availability and level of dancer) throughout January.  We will be closing most of our classes by February in order to prepare for the recital.  Our annual recital is Sunday, May 31 at the Dover High School Auditorium.
