SMALLER CLASSES

We are dedicated to providing a superior learning environment for all our students, therefore, we keep our class sizes small so that each student receives more attention and instruction.

QUALITY INSTRUCTORS

Our instructors are degreed professionals who bring a variety of national dance experience backgrounds and also continually further their education. We also provide several "master classes" every year that are hosted by guest instructors from all over the country.

THE HIGHEST STANDARDS

It is our purpose to maintain the highest standards of dance training for students of all ages and levels. Our classes are conducted and disciplined in a manner keenly associated with proper dance education. We demand respect and proper discipline at all times and reserve the right to dismiss any student who upsets the harmony of the school.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE ONLY EXPERIENCE CAN MAKE!

Grace, charm, poise, and a healthy, beautiful body - all can be acquired for your child through the art of dance. Children experience satisfaction of accomplishment from their own efforts. Their personality development is enhanced through this accomplishment. Our main objectives for the school are to teach coordination of mind and body, cooperation with others through group training and instill confidence and self assurance. These are the required qualifications for social success and good citizenship. Dancing is a part of your child's education. We truly believe in what we teach.

More Classrooms

We offer five classrooms in our studio so that we can offer a larger variety of classes per day.

QUALITY IS KEY

Quality classrooms that include raised cushioned professional dance floors with marley to protect your child from dance related injuries.

PERFORMANCE & COMPETITION TEAMS

Give your child the opportunity to compete or perform through our Performance Team, Ballet and Dance Company Teams and/or Hip-Hop Crew.

Kirsten’s tenure at The Sarasota Ballet from 2012-2014 afforded her the privilege of performing ballets in neoclassical and contemporary styles, including George Balanchine’s Serenade, Who Cares, and Four Temperaments.  She also danced in Sir Frederic Ashton’s  La Fille Mal Garde, Les Rendezvous, Façade, Illuminations and Sarasota’s Sir Frederic Ashton Festival, Antony Tudor’s Gala Performance, Agnes De MillesRodeo and Matthew Hart’s world premiere of John Ringling’s Circus Nutcracker.  She had the opportunity to dance featured roles in recent works by Kelly Yankle, “Ne Me Quitte Pas’, a contemporary Pas de Deux, and Ricki Bertoni’s “RagTop”, a stylized 1920’s ballet.  Kirsten was recognized as an “Ascending Artist” in 2012 by Gaynor Minden, and also photographed for their promotional materials.  In July 2011, she was highlight in Pointe Magazine’s fashion spread.  She also modeled for noted NYC photographer Tatiana Shoan, for 4 window photo installations, commissioned by DUGGAL,  23rd st, NYC, 2012.
