MEET OUR TEAM OF DANCE INSTRUCTORS.

We believe a teacher is the vital link for transmitting knowledge to the next generation. Just as mentors have guided us, we are the latest link in this chain. We take our responsibility to teach students the art of dance very seriously. We have taken that leadership position for the past forty years and will continue to guide with encouragement, creativity, discipline, and passion for many more years to come.
