With each dance company we present, Dance St. Louis provides the opportunity for local students and teachers of dance to take a master class with artistic directors, ballet masters, and soloists from the world’s greatest dance companies. Classes are offered on the campuses of our college partners, Webster University and Washington University, as well as COCA. 

Details are available about two weeks in advance of each master class regarding location, age and level restrictions, and the specific instructors. All students must pre-register.
