Performing Arts School

Our mission as dance educators is to instill a deep love of dance while also instilling self-confidence, discipline, integrity, and respect for the performing arts.

Finally, we will lay a strong foundation for a dancer’s career by honing their physical understanding of ballroom dance technical expectations as well as the artistic aspect of the art form
