THE DANCE DIMENSION TEAM
Dance Dimensions’ instructors are committed to excellence in dance education. We pride ourselves on producing well-rounded dancers. We achieve this by providing our dancers with a variety of growth opportunities that will prepare them to confidently continue in the dance world upon graduation.
Our greatest joy is to see dance affect the lives or our students in a manner that will stay with them throughout their lives, whether they choose to continue in the dance world or take another path. Dance will always be a part of them.
Our instructors started as young dancers, training in studios all over the country in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop and pom.
