The flexible class structure allows dancers to either pay by the class or purchase a pre-loaded “class card” at a discounted rate. SpartyCash is accepted for MSU students.

Children can participate in the “Junior Spartans,” a special program for children aged 3-15 years old. The Junior Spartan program is catered to teaching and perfecting the basics of dance technique, in preperation for advanced level dance classes. The program is fun, energetic, and strives to teach basic dance technique to beginners.
