Every child has their own personality...outgoing, quiet, futuristic, strategic...and one of the important aspects of childhood is having the outlet to express who you really are.
Dance gives children the opportunity to do just that. With the imaginary audiance attending every dance class, students get to step, literally, out of their shell and become someone they may not have the opportunity to display in other settings. Sometimes showing the most surprising amounts of confidence on stage that doesn't appear in the every day environment. Using their strategic thinking to understand formations and how dance steps can get you there. Taking that futuristic thinking and applying it to creating a finished product, by using choreography of ballet, tap, jazz, or modern to put it all together.
Dance is about not holding back. It's about having the confidence to share a piece of yourself with the audience-and knowing they will appreciate it. Dance is about being who you know you are...and being proud of it.
