The dog days of summer are right around the corner and we all know the importance of keeping kids active and entertained.


Stephenville Dance Center has released its summer schedule filled with camps, classes and weekly “punch card classes.”

"The punch card classes are perfect for those busy summer schedules, those who want to hone in skills during the summer or for those who want to try a new style of dance,” owner Renee Burdick told Beneath the Surface News. "Each week we will offer a different genre of dance for a drop-in class and we will announce the schedule on Facebook and Instagram.”


Weekly punch card classes are for ages 10 and older and are $15 per class, but you can purchase a “punch card” to receive a discounted rate.
