Philosophy:

Our goal is to provide our students with a firm foundation and a clear understanding of their art form.  We strive to provide a superior technical dance training in an atmosphere that fosters creativity, motivation, and a positive self-image.  Our ballet teaching follows the Vaganova system from Russia, which trains a child to develop good body placement and strong muscles with a progression of skills.
