Weekly Classes for All Ages and Dance Styles Offered with LOVV Resident Faculty.
Enrollment by class. Take one or take them all. Allows for flexibility with vacations or other summer plans. Not locked into the entire session. Discount offered when enrolling for more than 12 classes within the session. This discount also applies to siblings.
Can’t quite get that back limber or really want to nail a triple pirouette before Dance Team tryouts? Maybe the individualized attention and mentorship would brighten your child’s day and boost their confidence. Dance with one of your favorite teachers one on one or in a semi-private with a few friends to split the cost.
We can’t wait to keep dancing with you throughout the summer months! Keep up those skills, have fun with your friends, get exposed to new dance styles and teachers. Summers at LOVV are always progress oriented and SO MUCH FUN!
We use the lower hourly rate when a class falls between the 1 hour increments. So a 1.5 hour class would be $168 per session. 2 hours of class would be $248/session and 2.5 hours of class would be $300/session
Detailed Tuition Scale can be found here
2 months which includes 7-8 classes per session. Our full season runs from Sept 4 – June 12. It is broken up into 5 sessions for payment purposes. Once enrolled, a dancers place is held in applicable classes for the entirety of the season.
While we rarely have students who choose to discontinue their classes. Our sessions allow for someone to cancel their classes without any financial implications. We do require a 2 week notice if you will not be continuing through the next session. This is especially important when a class is full with waitlisted students. Without proper notice of cancelation, you will be responsible for paying the next session’s tuition even if the student stops attending.
Registration is open for our full season on August 1. We close registration when a class becomes full or by Jan 1. Because costumes need to be ordered for our recital, this is a strict cut-off date for enrollment.
Full Season Registration Fee $35 per family. No registration fee for any summer dance classes or intensives. Recital fee $35 per dancer. Costume fees $75-95 per costume. One costume per class. If your dancer is in hip-hop and jazz, they would need 2 costumes – but only charged once for the show fee.
Of course! They are welcome to attend any other age/skill appropriate class during the week. While we are happy to offer this, consistency is where we see the most progress so frequent make ups are discouraged. After Jan 1, most classes are working on recital work in addition to class curriculum, so please note missing your child’s own class also has then missing out on recital choreography and practice for the week.
We give age guidelines for each level of classes available. However, we do not have dance levels that correspond with every school grade, so dancers will spend a few years in each level at the studio. For example, our Level 1 classes are for dancers ages 6-8 so those students have been taking Level 1 from about Kindergarten - 2nd grade. Dancing at the same level for multiple years doesn’t mean they’re not progressing or “moving up. There is so much to learn and the foundation of dance technique is repeated through every age and level. The plies and releves that our Tiny Dancing 2's and 3's learn are the same as our advanced students do each week in their ballet classes. The practice never changes, but the students learn and grow with each year of work. The recital pieces will always be new and different so while the class label may stay the same, our students not only continue to build their dance skills, french vocabulary, and strengthen proper technique, but they will learn a different dance for the recital each year.
Our youngest class is Tiny Dancing Twos and Threes. We often have dancers start before the age of two! They should be willing to head in without a parent to enjoy the class with their friends. Dance is very fun and social. Don’t worry if there are tears at first. Sometimes it even takes a month or two for our youngest dancer to start fully enjoying themselves at the studio. Be patient. We are! Our teachers will hold your child hand or pick them up. It is a very loving environment and the music and movement makes everyone happy.
The 3-4 year old class would be the perfect fit. This class is for dancers who are 3 turning four within the year or dancers who will be 4 the entire season and who are in their 1st year of preschool. The next primary level is for 4-5 year olds (4 turning 5 within the year or 2nd year preschool)
We are always looking for helping hands. Let us know if you would be willing to volunteer some time or if you have any special talents you would like to share with our studio.
In LOVV we not only have the sweetest teachers but they are also incredibly talented choreographers. They really know their students and the end of the year recital is a show not to miss. Every year my family says it was better than the last.

All 5 of my children have had the pleasure of having Aretese as their teacher at some point. Besides being creative, artistic, and having great technical knowledge, Aretese has a way of teaching the kids that brings out the best in them, regardless of their starting ability. Her teaching style not only improves their technical skill, but helps improve their confidence and work ethic. Her positive energy and love of dance shines through her teaching and has inspired all of my children!
Michele W. / Parent of Former Students
Miss Aretese is one of the sweetest, nicest, most compassionate, caring and positive dance teachers our daughter has had the privilege to dance with! She has a wonderful way of encouraging our daughter to do her best and try new things while also guiding her to grow both individually and as a dancer. She is very professional, her choreography is both creative and current, and she has everyone's best interest at heart! She's extremely dedicated, "LOVVs" what she does, and you can see, on a daily basis, the "LOVV" she has for her students and their families. We "LOVV" The Dance Studio and look forward to many more seasons in her dance family!! We couldn't be happier to have found her!!
Cyndi O. / Parent of Former LOVV Dancer
I enjoy dancing for Miss Aretese because I feel like she has a really genuine LOVV for her students. She is super supportive and is also the type of teacher who wants her students to excel and improve. She also truly cares about us! But most of all I feel like we are one big family who truly LOVV'S to dance.
Libby O. / Former LOVV Dancer
All 3 of our daughters were lucky enough to have had Aretese as a dance instructor while she was still teaching in Minnesota. The passion and dedication she has for dance and teaching is incredible! We were honored that our youngest daughter Kailey was able to take a class with her while we were visiting the Chicago area just this last week, not only is Aretese a caring and loving dance instructor she is a wonderful choreographer with great technique and discipline who makes dance fun ! We are looking forward to another visit this summer for Kailey to take some summer intensive classes.
Brenda M. / Parent of Former Students
My four year old daughter has loved being in Aretese's class so much that our younger daughter, only two with just a few words, is already asking to 'go dancing with Miss Aretese!'. The instruction and choreography is superb at LOVV but we have also been very impressed with the level of professionalism, genuine love for their students and the character of Miss Aretese. We are thrilled we found LOVV The Dance Studio - they have given our daughter a great foundational start to dance and also a love for it at a very young age.
Jennifer W. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancer
There comes a time in your adult life, when you need to choose a dance studio for your young daughter. You spend time googling nearby places, researching instructors, and visiting studios for the right fit for you and your family. For me, the decision was easy.....follow Aretese Marie Low wherever her career took her....and that we did. In turn, my daughter has spent the first, most precious 4 years of her life being challenged and rewarded in so many ways. Her attitude and poise have been perfected, her love for dance enhanced week by week and her LOVV for the art magnified through movement and music. We owe all of this to Aretese! There are no words to describe the level of professionalism and talent she exudes. My daughter has become the exact dancer she wants to be, at a very young age because Aretese allows her to be herself in all aspects of the art. I cannot imagine anyone else guiding my daughter in her journey, and I truly feel as though she is the little expressive person she is today, because of so much she has learned from Aretese. If you are considering LOVV, you have come to your final destination for all things dance!
Elaine G. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancer
Aretese taught for me at my studio,Dancin' Star/White Bear Dance Center in White Bear Lake, MN. She did choreography and was an instructor for 3 years. A BIG letter C for Caring and Creative would describe Aretese. She made her classes fun while students learned proper technique. Aretese and Alison (who also taught for me), make this a fun family place to be!
Judy M. / Studio Owner
My daughter has been a dancer for 7 years. Since we started dancing with LOVV this past year she has grown as an individual in both confidence and technique. Her self- esteem is soaring. Dance should be a fun place where a child can strive to reach their personal goals and LOVV provides that environment.
Carol G. / Parent of Former LOVV Dancer
Thank you for such a spectacular show last night! I was so impressed with all the dancers and saw personal growth in my daughter. I was so proud of her and what she was able to accomplish under your and your team's guidance. She has grown and thrived so much since joining the LOVV family, I can't thank you enough for giving her that opportunity.
Morgan B. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancer
I am SO happy to have found our dance home!We've been to other studios and they either lacked technique or they lacked heart.LOVV Dance Studio lacks NEITHER!It was a great weekend and the way Aretese handled all the recital and all of its preparations was astounding. Patience, kindness, respect and lots of LOVV. My girls came alive on that stage and they were bursting with happiness and pride!That is priceless to me. I'm grateful to have found you and we look forward to many more years with LOVV.Cheers and thank you for a wonderful year!
Sheena W. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancers
I can not say enough about how amazing Miss Alison was this morning! It was my 3 year olds first time and Miss Alison was so welcoming! My Mia had a BLAST and can’t wait for another class!
Stephanie V. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancer
LOVV The Dance Studio is such an amazing dance studio my daughter and I are very lucky and blessed to have found Ms. Aretese and her studio. My daughter just started dancing a little over two years ago she is now 12 at the time when she started I was wondering if it would be worth the time and the money because she started a little bit older than a lot of kids but Ms. Aretese and all of her staff made my daughter feel strong and confident. We came across a rough time where my daughter was going to have to quit dance and Ms. Aretese helped my daughter Destiny to continue dancing by offering a scholarship for the upcoming season. This is not a studio that's all about the money this is a studio and staff that have geniune love for dance and their students. They believe in their students and make them feel good about themselves. I highly highly recommend LOVV The Dance Studio because they LOVV what they do.
Kim R. / Parent of Current LOVV Dancer
L❤️VV is an outstanding dance studio. The teachers focus on the kids development, and bring out the best of every dancers talent. In less than the one year my daughter has been here, I have seen her grow so much and her confidence has increased substantially. Warm, family environment and the teachers make you feel at home. We ❤️ LOVV!
Michelle D. / Parent of Former LOVV Dancer
The instruction received here is world class. It is a family atmosphere that can't be matched. I am proud to say my daughter is a LOVV dancer.
