Connie Cassidy School of Dance; a lifetime of dance, a legacy of family.  

Our studio is conveniently located at 3162 Niles Road in St. Joseph, MI across from Nye’s Apple Barn. 

45-minute Ballet/Tap Combination classes for students ages 3 through 9 offer fun songs and dances, along with a solid introduction to ballet technique, taught in a warm, welcoming environment. For students 10 years of age and older, we offer 1.5 hours of ballet and jazz, along with an optional half hour of tap at no additional charge. These classes introduce jazz technique and build on the ballet techniques learned previously. Single ballet or jazz classes are also available for those who do not wish to study both disciplines.

Please contact the dance studio for more information on specific classes.

*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
