Artistry in Motion

Summer after summer, students ages 9-18 are challenged to hone their technique and expressive energy by exploring many different styles of dance. From ballet to modern, tap to hip-hop, jazz to pointe, our dance faculty will draw out each dancer’s inner confidence into becoming an authentic performer. This discipline’s framework is designed to mold young Junior Artist dancers by emphasizing fundamentals and essential techniques early on. As students progress and eventually “graduate” into the High School level intensives, students will train in a professional class environment that will propel them onward as accomplished dancers. Open your mind and immerse yourself in the vast world of dance.
