Lively · Expressive · Rhythmic

Our specialty. At Latin Street, we are dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive atmosphere where children can comfortably explore and nurture their love for the Latin culture; and Salsa and Bachata are one of the most valuable expression forms.

Your child will learn the importance of leading/following another person and the techniques and footwork of Salsa and Bachata while improving their coordination, rhythm, and musicality. We believe that these popular Latin dance styles provide a fun and engaging way to move and help build social skills and self-assurance.


Fun · Energetic · Creative

This program is designed to introduce kids and teens to the exciting world of Hip Hop dance. Through our experienced instructors and fun and engaging classes, your child will learn fun moves and techniques while improving their coordination, rhythm, and musicality.

Hip Hop is not only a fun and energetic dance style, but it also encourages self-expression and creativity. We believe in providing a supportive and inclusive environment for kids to explore their passion for dance. Join us and watch your child develop their dance skills while having a blast!


Dynamic · Acrobatic · Athletic

This is a unique and exciting way for kids and teens to learn this dynamic and athletic dance style. Your child will learn the fundamentals of Breakdancing, including footwork, freezes, power moves and dance battles, in which they’ll learn how to enjoy the victory and respectfully accept when they might lose.

Breakdancing is a physical challenge that promotes quick thinking, an excellent attitude to dance, and creativity. Our studio is committed to creating a safe and welcoming space where children can freely discover and pursue their love for dancing.
