Educational Value

Dance students will achieve the physical attributes of coordination, poise, and grace; in addition to discipline of the mind and body. Young students improve self-confidence, foster creativity, and expand social development in an inspiring learning environment. Research has shown that music and dance lessons improve a student’s cognitive development, which directly correlates to educational success.
