Mission & Philosophy

Nutcracker food pantryOUR MISSION:  To provide a student-centered, positive experience in the celebration of ballet as an art form.  We still believe after 50 years that the study of dance (especially ballet) is ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS YOU CAN PROVIDE FOR YOUR CHILD.

OUR PHILOSOPHY:  Our philosophy embraces a firm commitment to the study of classical ballet as the basic foundation for building strong dancers.  Our philosophy also includes a strong belief in nurturing a child’s development through the art of ballet by providing positive, challenging learning experiences which help develop poise, grace, cognitive development, self-reliance, team spirit, and cooperation to endure a lifetime.  We support the belief that ballet stimulates and encompasses the human dimensions of mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.  We also believe it is important to provide dance activities that are developmentally appropriate for children and youth.
