ACROBATICS

What is acro and how is it different from gymnastics? Acrobatics is an art form. It is not a sport and is not taught with Olympic competition in mind.

ACTING & MUSICAL THEATRE

In essence, creative drama is dramatic activities which have the experience of the participants as the goal.

BALLET

Our ballet program uses the syllabus from the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum.

JAZZ

Jazz dance is an exploration of style and presentation; it emphasizes balance, flexibility, coordination, strength, and creative expression.

MODERN

The modern program gives students a traditional modern dance foundation that segues into contemporary modern dance forms.

TAP

Tap is excellent for the body and the mind. When a student puts on a pair of tap shoes they become a dancer AND a musical instrument!

THEATRE DANCE

With over 60 combined years of Broadway experiences and shows, Scott Wise and Mary Ann Lamb have a near endless repertoire of original choreography in their heads.

VOCAL PERFORMANCE

Ages 11 and up. Performing a song in front of a small group or a large audience may look easy but there is art and technique to it. The performance of a song within a musical or in a cabaret setting must have intention, move the audience emotionally, and be entertaining.

TESTIMONIALS

  • My children grew up at FineLine, spending every afternoon and weekend there since it first opened over a decade ago. The programs and teachers there are second to none. We were extremely fortunate to be able to make this amazing program their home away from home. We recommend them to all of our aspiring performers here at Education without Walls!

  • My daughter loves this place and adores each and every one of her teachers. She is unbelievably grateful for such a supportive and non-competitive environment. ALL of the staff are professionals, with extensive experience dancing and acting on Broadway, and at some of the most prestigious schools in the world. It is amazing, that there is a performing arts school of this caliber in our town!

  • I've been to many music classes with my children and am so thrilled to discover Little Birds Music Class. My youngest is very shy and at the 2nd class was participating with Felicia, the instructor! Such a warm, professional and flexible environment. If there were an option to give 6 stars, I would have!

  • The Staff at FineLine is the best there is, any student would be fortunate to walk in their front door and take in what they have to share - they will grow and learn and discover who they are as an artist.
