Private Business

My company was created to fill the need for comprehensive and individualized dance training that exists in the competitive and pre-professional areas of dance. Dancers are guided to success via individualized education on anatomical body alignment, functional movement, muscular strength & flexibility, and the prevention of injuries. One-on-one training allows for dancers to correct their weaknesses and habits with functional exercises to rapidly improve overall ability, all while receiving consistent communication, guidance, and encouragement from their instructor. The vital knowledge of the body and mechanics of movement applied appropriately to a dancer's desired skills and individual learning needs is the formula for success in the field of dance.
