DANCE EXPRESSIONS PHILOSOPHIES AND GOALS

 

We strive to provide our students with quality dance instruction in a nurturing and friendly stress-free dance environment.

 

Our professional dance instructors are above all educators who focus on producing dancers that are poised, confident along with high self-esteem.

 

Dance technique is very important to Miss Laurene, our Director, and as such , dance students receive quality technique training from September through the end of each December, and not until January do they begin to focus and learn their dance performance choreography.
