About The Dance Corner
Our Philosophy of Dance
Our teachers and staff influence our students' future far beyond just what we will observe in our classrooms and in our public performances. We must strive to assure that while we are building a passion for dance, that we are also building self-esteem and confidence in all of our dancers. That is our primary objective. While technical excellence will contribute to their passion, self-esteem and confidence, it is a secondary objective only.
How Our Philosophy Drives What We Do
Whatever the aspiration of the student, we strive to teach in a positive and nurturing environment. Whether or not a dance career is planned, students are presented with a curriculum that reflects the standards and traditions of today's dance world. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace, with classes offered for the beginner through professional level. Our teachers are dedicated to developing the dancer's self-esteem along with the student's technical and artistic skills.
Our Community of Dancers
Since 2001, The Dance Corner has introduced dance to thousands of children and adults. We have seen many of our students progress from pre-school through college.
The Dance Corner community crosses municipal and school district borders, allowing our dancers to build lasting friendships with like-minded peers. Through these shared experiences with others, our students develop confidence, maturity and independence.
Of course, being part of the community beyond the studio walls is also important. We welcome opportunities to share our students' talents and love of dance by performing for free at area events such as The Renaissance Faire, Founders' Day, fund raising events and numerous shows at the senior centers and nursing homes.
Our Dance Facility
We operate in two side-by-side 2,000-square-foot studios with professional-quality sprung dance floors and a state-of-the-art sound system. Our waiting room offers a free WiFi connection, allowing our older students to work on homework between classes and keeping parents connected while they are in our studio. We maintain a HDTV in the waiting room to keep parents and students abreast of the latest dance school and dance company news.
