The Lisle Park District dance program is designed to improve grace and flexibility while exposing participants to the beauty and benefits of dance. Dancing is a life skill that also teaches children good posture, grace, rhythm, and coordination.

This is a cumulative program that runs Fall 2018 through Spring 2019. Dancers will learn techniques and skills throughout the year, and during Session 2, each class will learn a dance that will be performed in the Spring Recital. A dancer will stay with the same class from September through May. Session 2 is for students who have attended session 1. No new students will be added session 2.
