After School Gifted & Talented Dance Classes offered for grades 3-12

WEST COLUMBIA, SC – Lexington Two will offer a new opportunity in the 2022-2023 year with After School Gifted & Talented Dance Classes. 


Students will gain technique in jazz and contemporary dance as well as develop performance skills.  The program is offered for students in grades 3-12.  

Parents/guardians and teachers can nominate students for these auditions. Parents should contact their child’s school by Thursday, September 1, 2022 to nominate their child.  


Students will audition for acceptance into the program. Families will receive letters by mail letting them know if their child has been accepted into the program.

Classes will meet once a week, October through April, and there will be a performance showcase in the spring.


There will be no charge for the dance classes, but families will be responsible for the cost of their child’s costume for the year-end spring showcase performance.
