It is our hope and our belief that by creating a competition dance team, we will also create more opportunities to give our students a sense of achievement, pride and accomplishment, expand their knowledge and love of dance, while increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem. Our program is focused on teaching proper dance technique, terminology and studying various styles of dance to become versatile dancers. We hope to further that focus and build on our philosophy. In addition to our current program, we hope to further encourage the development of life skills – commitment, discipline, dedication, determination, integrity, hard work, teamwork, work ethic, and responsibility through the challenges and experiences provided in a team setting. Our goal is for our competitive program to give students the opportunity to express themselves and grow in a positive, challenging and fun environment. Our most important objective is to instill confidence and a positive self-image as well as give our students a well-rounded dance education.
