Dance instrution
Our concept and curricula were developed to provide families with a convenient, affordable way for their children to enjoy and study various movement arts in a positive, fun atmosphere that cultivates respect, discipline, and self-esteem. Offering dance and martial arts classes in after-school programs (or even during regular school hours) allows students to participate in these activities while their parents are working, rather than adding one more thing to their families' overly full evenings.
