Dance Training

We consider dance an essential expression of the human spirit. In all cultures, at all times dance has been used in ceremony, celebration, and as an art. In teaching dance, we hope to foster students' own creative expression & confidence in physical movement. We believe dance is for all ages, all gender, all body types & abilities.
