"dance from your heart and the rest will fall into place"
-Founder, Cinda Herndl

Ballet Program

Thrive Dance Studio offers a ballet program that encourages the attainment of technical training while inspiring a LOVE and PASSION for performing. It is our belief that students should have a vast understanding, more than just basic dance training and we encourage this by helping them develop a kinesthetic and anatomical understanding of their bodies in all levels. Together these goals ensure that your child will not only enjoy the art of ballet but also have the opportunity to attain INVALUABLE SKILLS and knowledge that expand beyond the studio walls.

Ballet is a beautiful, codified form of dance and a strong foundation for other styles of movement. Ballet technique takes strong commitment to learn and master, and much practice to retain proficiency. Thrive offers a Pre-Pointe Class for the aspiring pointe dancer. Pre-pointe training ensures that every dancer safely achieves appropriate strength, flexibility, and commitment to getting their shoes. 


Thrive dance studio specializes in ballet offering a variety of classes during the week and TWO full-length Ballet Productions each season.

Held at professional venue, Chief Sepass Theatre, and directed by owners, Natalie and Krystal Kohan, the productions are the highlight of the season for all dancers, families, and friends.
