Dance Classes

Instructor Jenny Hansell and her Happy Feet Dance Company staff have more than 30 years of combined teaching experience, bringing a wide variety of classes to all ages across the north metro area.  She is excited to once again bring her popular, high energy program to Vadnais Heights!

We are offering an action packed 14-week session, with an exciting spring dance show at the conclusion of the session on Tuesday, April 24 at the White Bear High School North Campus Auditorium.  A $50 check, payable to Happy Feet, is due the first day of class for the costume fee (includes costume and tights) for the Spring Dance Recital.

Dancers should wear a leotard and tights or comfortable, movement-ready clothing.  All dancers will need tap and ballet shoes.  Dance shoes will be available for purchase the first week of class.  If you already have shoes, please bring them to the first class. Email instructor Jenny Hansell with questions regarding the dance program at missjenny@happyfeetdancecompany.com.
