Meet our dance instructors
We are passionate about our student's success in dance and in life. Children often look up to their dance teacher. We strive to make sure that what they are seeing is an example worth following.
Our instructors have degrees in dance and/or are members of professional ballet companies. They are dedicated to teaching strong technique. This commitment helps our students get stronger, avoid injury, and gives them the firm foundation they need to enjoy other styles of dance in the future.
