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 April 21 at the White Bear High School North Campus Auditorium. 

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.
