Summer Programs

Miss Maria’s School of Dance offers princess & super hero dance (ages 3 to 5); ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop dance (ages 6 to 8; and 9 to 12), teen dance intensives and drop-in classes over the summer. There is something for everyone! Please see below for details.

Summer 2019 – We will be relocating to The Watertown Mall, 550 Arsenal Street, in the former Registry of Motor Vehicles location, during the Summer months. Therefore, we will not run a Summer Dance Program this year but plan to open sometime in August 2019 so you can stop in and visit us, check out our new digs, meet our amazing faculty — and maybe even take a drop-in dance class or workshop.
