Parents LOVE 3rd Street Dance
Participating in dance classes at
3rd Street Dance has been so wonderful for Gwen. She has made much progress with her technique, and her confidence in front of crowds has gone through the roof.
Additionally, she has made many new friends. We are excited that we get to introduce our younger daughter Sydney to dance through the classes at 3rd Street Dance.

Coco - Lucy's Mom
My daughter has been dancing here for a decade now and this studio has become her dance home. She has grown and learned so much by being a part of this amazing community. Ms. Alice is an inspiration to our whole family. If you are considering giving them a try, I highly recommend them. This is a studio with values, morals, and positivity. It is exactly what a young dancer needs! We love 3rd Street for life!
Penny - Paige's Mom
The most exciting thing about being a new mom of a baby girl is the day you buy her first ballet outfit and tutu and take her to her first ballet class. I had heard a lot of great things about 3rd Street Dance in St. Charles. (Approximately a 35 min. drive for us but worth it. - I only want the best for my little girl.) The thing that stands out most for me throughout the years is not only their extreme talent and professionalism but more so - the awesome way the whole team of administrators and teachers make you feel like you are a part of a family.

Ballet is the cornerstone of all dance styles. These classes focus on classical ballet technique, teaching body placement and alignment. Students will also develop strength, flexibility, grace, poise, balance and musicality. We work on movement quality, coordination, and artistic control of the body.
The rhythm and movement of tap, created by the metal taps on the heels and toes of a dancer’s shoes, transforms the dancer into a percussive musician. Tap dance emphasizes the flow of movement by teaching the dancer to find rhythms and beats not only in music but in their own bodies.
Jazz is rhythmic stylized dance that is fun and energetic. Classes study technique, while learning leaps, turns and jumps. Jazz classes build strength stamina and flexibility while focusing on proper posture, placement. Students in jazz classes will start to incorporate style into their movements.
Hip Hop is a contemporary form of jazz, focusing on conditioning, precision, and urban style. This is a fun and high energy form of dance that has grown in popularity. Students will explore the freedom of movement as well as develop rhythm, musicality and coordination. Age appropriate music is always chosen for this class.
Lyrical dance combines ballet and jazz techniques together in an expressive manner that incorporates control and complete body awareness. Lyrical is generally smoother and a bit faster than ballet, but not quite as fast as jazz.
Modern dance focuses on moving from within. Our classes are designed to build strength and flexibility of the lower spine and pelvis while teaching the dancer to move freely with their body.
