Children move naturally. They move to express a thought or feeling. They move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. Dance is a natural mechanism for learning and a basic form of expression. It can have an immeasurable impact on one’s life. The process of learning to dance supports children's physical, emotional, social and cognitive development. Young dancers participate in a beautiful art form, routed in technique, and gain the opportunity to develop their own creative outlet.
Our mission is to inspire young dancers to express themselves, gain physical skills and fully enjoy the art of dance. Whether they are building the most basic dance fundamentals or pursuing the highest accomplishments in dance, the TDS faculty encourages each student to achieve their full potential. Most importantly, we want to share our love of dance, instill confidence and self-awareness in our student body and foster the next generation of dance artists.
We provide comprehensive and creative dance education for students 2-18 years of age. Our programs provide the opportunity for any dancer, regardless of previous experience, to discover the joys of dance. Our thoughtful and experienced faculty and curriculum guides dancers through an exploration of movement, including coordination, strength, flexibility, technique, rhythm, music, expression and more, in a supportive and fun atmosphere.
