Our Faculty

We believe in the best training and opportunities possible for our students, but we never forget we are working with children and young adults. Our role in your child's life is very important to us. Our teachers are honored to share their love of dance and knowledge of the professional world with our students. Together, we teach them skills that will shape them into successful adults for life in dance and far beyond.
