Our Mission Statement

Kathryn Barnett School of Danceis dedicated to:

The instruction of excellence in the performing arts.

The development of a solid sense of self-esteem through dance education and performance.

Inspiring young people to be the best they can be.

Furnishing opportunities to explore and appreciate dance and other aspects of the performing arts.

Providing an approachable, friendly staff to help with any aspect of The Studio.

Dance Classes

There is something for every dancer at KBSD!  We offer classes in classical ballet, pointe, jazz,  tap, hip hop, and acro, with pre-school through adult classes, and competition team. 

All classes are geared toward age, experience, and performance. 

Ballet technique classes are open to ALL students.  Audition for level required.

The Kathryn Barnett School of Dance believes that professionalism begins with a dress code.  Ladies are expected to wear black leotards at all times, pink tights and shoes, and hair secured in a bun for ballet.  For other classes, ponytails, tan tights, and appropriate shoes.  Gentlemen are expected to wear white t-shirts, black athletic shorts, and black shoes for all classes.  Quality merchandise is always available to order or purchase at the studio.

Preschool Programs

At Kathryn Barnett School of Dance, we understand the importance of introducing children to music and the arts at a young age.  Creative movement develops a sense of balance, improves agility, and encourages creativity.  

3-4 year olds = Blue Fairy (1)! 
This program introduces children to movement & music through the basic elements of ballet, developing gross and fine motor coordination, creative movement, self-expression, and self-awareness.

4-5 year olds = Blue Fairy (2)!
Pre-school dancers further explore elementary ballet and are introduced to tap in a fun and playful environment. These classes continue with motor development plus music awareness and basic dance steps.

5-6 year olds = Kinder Dance! 
Dancers at this level have options to experience a fuller understanding of ballet, tap, and jazz. Classes contain wider vocabulary of dance moves, rhythms, and music skills while keeping a “fun” approach.

Traveling Troupe

We offer two levels of the award-winning Barnett Traveling Troupe. First, our Competition Team, winners of the prestigious Class Act Award at OnStage New York, and also our Performance Troupe, who are involved in community performances and can opt to attend one competition. 

Master Classes

All students are invited to participate in Master Classes.  This is an exciting way to work with the nation's leading teachers and choreographers.

Annual Showcase

Dance is a performing art.  Performances need to be viewed to be truly appreciated.  Choreography and costumes are age-appropriate. This year's annual recital is scheduled in June at the Performing Arts Center at Monmouth Regional High School.  All students are invited to perform in this production.

Private Lessons

Available at a special rate.  Please contact the school for details. Cancellations of private lessons must be made 24 hours in advance or the student will be charged.
