Training Leaders In The Classroom, and The Community
Our curriculum is heavily influenced on technique and as the dancers grow and mature we blend in more advanced artistic movement. Our main objective is to train the dancers to know how to move their bodies correctly and safely so that they may dance for the rest of their lives, whether it be professionally or recreationally.Dance training will almost certainly transform the way one holds their body. Dancers will be taught to hold their heads up high, a properly positioned spine and hips, to put the correct amount of weight on their feet, improve balance and coordination, and to carry themselves in a light and fluid manner. We will also emphasize proper dance class and recital etiquette, appropriate dance attire, and respecting fellow dancers.

COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE
Poise, Grace, & Etiquette
Dance training will almost certainly transform the way one holds their body. Dancers will be taught to hold their heads up high, a properly positioned spine and hips, to put the correct amount of weight on their feet, improve balance and coordination, and to carry themselves in a light and fluid manner. We will also emphasize proper dance class and recital etiquette, appropriate dance attire, and respecting fellow dancers.
Goal Setting, Hard Work, & Determination
All dancers, whether taking classes casually or formally, should have a goal that they hope to obtain. Whether it be for fitness and good health or a future audition for a dance school, all dancers should have a goal that they are trying to reach. We will encourage setting such goals for themselves and understanding that it will take hard work and determination to ultimately reach those goals. As with anything in life, you have to work hard and push your limits to get to the top of the mountain. We hope to inspire our dancers to feel this way about dance and everything they do in their lives and understand that anything is possible as long as you set your mind to it and never stop fighting for it.
Friendship & Team Building
We hope you find the studio to be a welcoming environment. Dance is very much a team effort and it is important for dancers to learn how to work with multiple personalities in multiple dance settings. We will encourage friendly competition while still respecting and supporting one another. Like many things in life, without full cooperation of the team as a whole, an end result would never be reached. When it comes to a group dance, every dancer is equally important.
Individuality & Creativity
Everyone is different and we appreciate that. We have the daintiest ballerina and the super coolest hip hopper. We want every dancer to find their own voice and follow their heart. We would never want our dancers to look precisely the same at all times; they would never stand out that way. Having perfected technique and good form does not mean looking like clones. We love uniqueness and individual creativity. In all of our classes, we take time to let dancers make up their own steps and often let them incorporate those steps in our class routines. It makes them personal, it makes them their own. Allowing dancers to think outside the box and create their own art is an incredible skill to have and can be connected to many other aspects of their life.
