Our mission is to be a positive force enriching the mind, body, and spirit through dance. The vision is to inspire the community with dance education and offer performance opportunities in a facility that will motivate, educate, and develop an appreciation of the fine arts.
We are the home of the dancer without judgment indifferent to size, race, or gender. We believe dance develops many skills and is a way out for many youths. Our Motto is "Dance as an Exit". Dance has been credited with helping:
Builds self- esteem
Increase physical fitness
Teaches socialization skills
Encourages teamwork and concentration
