BackBeat City Dance Program


We offer a multitude of Dances. From Hip Hop and Jazz to Ballet and Tap, BackBeat City brings you opportunities to learn, improve, and get moving!

Musical Theater and BackBeat Broadway:

Our Musical Theater Class is a chance for children and teens to work together utilizing their acting, singing, and dance skills. The end result is a full fledged musical! This Spring 2012 Semester, BackBeat Broadway is putting on 13: The Musical. Check our Blog and Calendar periodically for continual updates and details.

Acting and Drama:

From improvisation to Public Speaking, we offer Drama Classes for students looking to become more involved with theater or looking to improve their stage presence and day to day interactions!

Rock Band Program CT

Rock Band:

Calling all rockstars! We’re looking for singers, guitarists, bass, keys, drums to create our first ever BackBeat City Rock Band! Inspired by the movie School of Rock, we encourage and guide students through the beginning stages of forming a rock and roll band. For our more experienced rock stars, we offer critiques and guidance to improve the great sound they already have.

Homework Lounge:

At our studio, we encourage students to kick off their shoes and feel at home… but we also want them to do their work. At BackBeat City, there are quiet lounges for students to occupy after school so they can study and do homework.


BackBeat City is a positive environment for kids to expand and grow creatively. Walking, talking, venting, listening, sharing, growing — at BackBeat we do it all!

Summer Programs:

Music Workshops, Summer Day Camp, Private Lessons, and more!
Stay tuned for Summer 2012 Schedule!
