Dance is a form of unspoken communication that frames the artwork of one’s inner self. Dance allows individuals to express their emotions, discover new worlds and seek acceptance in ways they may have not thought obtainable. The art of dance, as well as the instructor, provide the avenues needed in class for students to feel the freedom of movement, expression and creative voice. It is the instructors responsibility to provide an uplifting, safe and inspirational environment with the foundation needed for all students, no matter the ability, to reach their full potential while building their confidence and trust along the way. The ultimate goal is for all of these avenues, emotions, movements and new found freedoms to allow students to inhale the breath of enthusiasm in order to exhale their own unique dance voice.
