About Project Dance
Project Dance strives to instill the love of dance and respect of the art into all of our dancers. The mission of our studio is three-fold focusing on excellence, equality, and family.
We strive for EXCELLENCE in everything we do. Starting with dance training, Project Dance ensures that only the best of the best teachers are in the classroom with your child each week.
We provide EQUALITY among our students. Each and every student receives the same training. We feel that it is very important to allow every child the same opportunities regardless of class, race, shape, size, or skill level.
We have created a FAMILY here at Project Dance. When someone walks in our doors we embrace them with open arms. Our family environment makes us very unique and we wouldn't have it any other way.
"Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion."
- Martha Graham
