Dance, for us, is vision driven and purpose-filled and can culturally inform our community and society, nationally and globally. The physical and mental focus required in dancing encourages reflection of the self, creating values and goals that together generate mission oriented living. Dancing does not live in a studio or theater, but in the heart of the individual.

Here is a sampling of our educational offerings. We welcome your inquiry and look forward to the possibility of working with you to fulfill the goals you have for dance in your community.
