Our dedication to teaching dance is evident by both the joy and skill seen in our students. Many students have gone on to compete and perform in some of the countries most prestigious events. One of the founding beliefs of our program is that dance teaches important social values. Our students learn not only how to be graceful, coordinated and poised, but how to be self disciplined, self-confident and cooperative as well. Along with attaining more refined manners and better posture our students also leave the studio with an education in different cultures.Students gain insight into other cultures through their study of dances. This cultural education is further supplemented by our own multicultural staff and student body. For all these reasons (and many more) we believe involvement in partner dance is one of the greatest ways to boost a persons self-esteem.
