A Place for Growth to Soar

At every class we work hard to instill a solid foundation in the technique and vocabulary of ballet, tap and jazz while helping each student appreciate the art of dance.

Our greatest goal is to inspire children to be the best they can be in all they do, and our greatest satisfaction is when we see pure joy on their faces!


The school is open to children and career-oriented students as well as anyone who wishes to study for the pure enjoyment of the art form.

Our Mission

To provide a progressive platform of dance instruction that stresses both physical and artistic development to our students so that they may safely push their personal limits in the classroom, onstage and beyond!


My daughter loves Annie’s encouragement and that she pushes her to the next level of performance!! Thanks, Annie
