Don't miss out on the fun and creativity!

Why Dance?

Arts research shows that students who study dance are more:
  • self motivated, disciplined and focused in their everyday lives.
  • expressive in their communication of emotions, thoughts and feelings.
  • creative and imaginative.
  • able to critically analyze their own work and the work of others.
