MISSION STATEMENT

Why should children learn to dance?

Not all students will become professional dancers or teachers, but we aim to ensure that every student who passes through our hands, has the opportunity to learn the wonderful sense of achievement to be gained from mastering one of life’s most challenging and beautiful art forms, & will be able to become part of the educated dance audience of the future.
