Wheaton Studio of Dance

Celebrating  our 64th year of Dance Excellence

Classes offered:


A wide variety of classes for everyone!

Our Combination classes are generally aimed toward the younger dancer. Class consists of about 30 minutes of ballet, followed by 30 minutes of tap.

  • Beginner levels are available. Starting age for beginners is 3 years old.
  • Dancers must be potty trained.

Lower Intermediate/Intermediate
The next step out of combination classes comes full ballet classes. The lower intermediate and intermediate classes build technique and introduce new terms into the students' ballet vocabulary. The classes are more basic, yet they cover a wide variety of steps, technique skills, and placements.

Lower Advanced/Advanced
Students enrolled in the lower advanced/advanced classes are expected to know the basics of ballet structure (positions, steps, vocabulary). The advanced classes work at a faster pace and have more challenging barre and center exercises.

The beginner and intermediate tap classes focus more on the students to get used to the style and feel of tap.

The advanced tap classes introduce more intricate techniques, steps, and combinations. The students who participate in the classes are more attuned to certain rhythms and can use their feet to translate the beat.

Hip Hop
No dance experience is necessary to sign up for our beginner hip hop classes. Hip hop is a fun and energizing way to express music through dance moves, and are highly recommended for those who are interested in dance with attitude.

Focusing more on the precision of the style, the advanced classes are based off students who can experience more difficult styles and techniques. Advanced competition classes are applicable by audition only.

The younger levels of jazz focus more on building strength and technique into the jazz style. Students experience many different types of jazz. Strength and flexibility are built throughout the year.

Certain techniques and steps are required to participate in the advanced jazz. Classes tend to be more difficult and fast-paced. Endurance, flexibility and technique skills are practiced.


Acrobatic Dance is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Our Acro program is based on safe and effective progressions in five divisions of AcroDance: flexibility, strength, balancing, limbering, and tumbling. Students will learn acro tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials, and tumbling lines.


Zumba is a fusion of Latin and International music, with easy to follow moves to create a one of a kind fitness program. No experience necessary. Come join the FUN!!

PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique)

We are offering a new class for our more advanced dancers (instructor approval required for registration). 

The dancers will need to purchase a yoga mat, pilates ball, large fitness ball (sizes different per height of dancer), and a thera band.
Attachment: Equipment for PBT 
This class would be beneficial for all of the girls, it will help with stretching, correct body alignment, strength, and more. I hope this is something your dancer would be interested in!
