Inspiring a Life-Long Love of Dance

The Family Museum is proud to offer a wide variety of excellent dance classes!  Year-long classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, modern, and pointe are offered for students beginning at age three.  At the Family Museum, we strive to educate and inspire our students with a life-long love of dance as a performing art. Family Museum dancers learn how to dance while building self-esteem and having fun in our unique, recreational environment. The year ends with a dance recital for dancers to demonstrate what they have learned.

  • Unique performance opportunities
  • Caring, professional teachers

​For New Students

Our dance classes span the traditional school year (September-May). Registration for the year starts in late June or early July, and Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet classes will be open for new students at this time. If you are a new student age 6 or older, please email Dance Coordinator Jessica or call (563) 344-4151 for placement. 

I am so impressed with the staff of the Family Museum. [They] were wonderful hosts and so welcoming not only to me but to all of the student inventors and their families.
