Why Dance Here?
- Our experience shows.
- After over 50 years of offering instruction, we know how to meet our dancers' needs. We do everything we can to exceed your expectations.
- We offer structured classes, while encouraging each student to express their own individual creativity. Also .. we ask our students to be supportive and help cheer each other on, and we always appreciate input from the parents to help us provide a positive dance experience for their child.
- We specialize in small class size which allows for learning on a very personal level. (only 5 to 10 students per class, less whenever possible) Each student is important to us and we want to nurture their development. If you are enrolled where the class size is very large ..... that just isn't possible.
- All classes are taught with "the positive reinforcement method" in a cheerful atmosphere that promotes good self-esteem. WE MAKE LEARNING FUN ! To keep it FUN ...... we even incorporate special games that teach "real dance steps" but keep it light hearted so that the students are laughing and having FUN while they are learning.
- All instructors have extensive training and are highly qualified in their area of instruction. In addition to using "positive reinforcement", we also use "proprioception teaching techniques" which make it easier for a student to retain what they have learned.
- As students progress beyond beginner level (basic skills) , we also offer intermediate and advanced level classes, and beyond that ...... Soph. Line, Jr. Line, Sr. Line, and Tap Line, which are classes that require certain achievement levels to gain entry.
- In addition to our annual Recital in June, we also invite family members and friends to come into the classrooms and observe classes during designated “Visitors' Weeks.” This is a wonderful opportunity to see "close - up" what the students are learning and gives our dancers a small taste of performance.
