OUR MISSION is to provide technical and creative dance classes for dancers, and put on productions that will give jobs to people, and entertainers in the industry.
OUR PROGRAMS are session-based, to focus on a technical or creative goal, or to build a dance foundation for Beginners. This allows us to have inclusive relationships with our students, and give them a personal experience.
OUR COMMUNITY is made up of young people who are starting as Beginners in the dance industry, their parents who want to be apart of a growing business and family, and passionate dancers who want to train intensively.
