Dance is a gift that will last a lifetime.
Dance is an athletic art form that strengthens the student physically, stimulates them mentally, and inspires them artistically. We believe that introducing and enriching children in dance is a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime.
Dance promotes good postural alignment, physical strength, and flexibility. It teaches poise and can have a positive impact on an individual’s level of self-confidence. Dance enhances musical awareness and helps develop rhythm and coordination. It stimulates artistic thought and feelings of well-being.
A fun and encouraging introduction to the world of dance, the Primary Division is designed to engage the young child in the process of learning.
Ages 7+ and Teen
The foundation for all future dance training, the Student Division emphasizes proper posture, placement, and coordination.
Technically and artistically challenging, the Academy Program prepares dancers for training in a college program or a professional setting.
