We strive to create a learning environment in which each dancer can feel safe to make mistakes, learn, and grow. Our instructors use constructive corrections and encouragement to guide the learning process.
We see our dancers as important within the dance community. We encourage our dancers to work as a team and many of them build life-long friendships.
