Our 12 Week Session Classes run twice a season: Fall + Spring.

We offer two programs in our mini session:

Mini + Me: Caretaker and Dancer Classes


Darby's Dancers: Dance Classes for Dancers with Special Needs

The details and performance opportunities for each of the two programs vary so please be sure to read all the details below.

12 Week Session Classes

12 Week Session Class Schedule

Our specialty sessions run for 12 weeks each, twice a season: Fall (September 9-December 2) & Spring (February 17 - May 4). These classes focus on the value of connection and movement. We are excited to bring these new programs to our community for the 23-24 dance season, and we cannot wait to see dancers in these programs gain confidence, coordination, strength and lifelong friends, all while feeling like a star!

Below is the current class schedule for both programs. The new class schedule and enrollment for the next Session will be announced at least 2 months before the start date (ex. Spring session schedule will be announced no later than December). Enrollment for these programs are completely online through our Parent Portal along with our full season classes as well.

Darby’s Dancers at Turning Pointe:

Inclusive Performing Arts

We are proud to be a charter studio of Darby’s Dancers - a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bringing the joy of the performing arts to as many children and young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities as possible. 

At once-a-week classes, Darby’s Dancers learn all types of dance in a fun, encouraging atmosphere. Dancers in the program gain confidence, coordination, strength and lifelong friends, all while feeling like a star. Darby's Dancers also provides volunteer opportunities for teens. Our youth volunteers learn important lessons in responsibility and friendship by providing one-on-one assistance to a special needs dancer.

Through partnerships with dance families at the studio, in our surrounding community, and local businesses, dancers enrolled in Darby's Dancer classes at Turning Pointe School of Dance receive the following:

  • 50% off Class Tuition

  • Apparel for Weekly Classes (TP t-shirt, dance leggings, and ballet shoes)

  • Christmas Show Costume (rental from studio)

  • Spring Recital Costume (keepsake for dancer)


Support Darby's Dancers

Through charitable contributions our Darby's Dancers program provides dance classes, supplies and costumes to dancers with special needs. We would love for you to partner alongside us as we give every child the tools to discover all that dance as to offer!

Mini + Me Dance Program

Our caretaker and child class encourages children to love learning through movement, music, and dance all with the comfort of their caretaker participating alongside them! This program is a great way to prepare your child for a class on their own. The Mini + Me classes develop gross motor skills, musicality, listening skills, and nurture creative movement. Mini+ Me Classes do not perform in Seasonal Recitals or Shows. Each Caretaker is required to participate for the entirety of the class. This program is a wonderful way for young dancers to acclimate to the dance studio before joining a teacher-dancer class in our Twinkle Star Program.

Registration Fee: $55 per dancer

12 Week Session Tuition: $195 per dancer
