About Us

Mission Statement

We help our students to develop confidence, social awareness, team experience, body awareness, physical and mental discipline and emotional resilience through exploration of the art of dance.
We strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for students to find their own voice. To persevere through their failures as well as triumph in their accomplishments. We strive to celebrate achievements with each student. We are so proud to be responsible for creating this tribe of resilient, passionate, kind, caring human beings that have a positive impact on our community. Strength of character is built on goal setting and working hard to achieve them. There is value in the process as what they learn along the way is just as important as achieving the goal itself.
