The Ridgefield School of Dance is a school of excellence, discipline, challenge and joy, and is supported by a faculty of current and former professional dancers. We offer pre-professional and recreational classes in Classical Ballet and Jazz. In addition to Ballet and Jazz, we offer Pre-Ballet, Modern, Lyrical, Tap, Musical Theater Dance, and adult classes along with Summer Dance Programs as an integral part of our curriculum.
The Friends of Madison Youth is a non-profit organization that runs programs and events out of the youth center at The Madison Arts Barn. The youth of the Connecticut shoreline can attend and participate in concerts, creative and academic workshops, theatrical performances, skate jams and more. Programs include theatrical productions, leadership opportunities, educational support services, artisitic and technology competitions and trainings, social events, summer camps and workshops. We strive to create a safe, substance-free environment that nurtures artistic expression, creativity and self-confidence.
