For more advanced students, private attention is needed to fine tune technique such as body awareness, placement and coordination, as well as finer points of expression and interpretation. This type of fine-tuning is best in a private lesson setting. Students looking to perform solo work as a dancer are encouraged strongly to register for a private lesson.
P.E.E.R. Ensemble: Performers Encouraging & Establishing Relationships
The ensemble experience is the perfect setting for any child wishing to use their love for dance to establish relationships with peers as well as people in their own community! PEER is a supportive group setting which develops both dance, performance and leadership skills. These skills not only benefit the physical health of the student, but enhance the overall general education.
