Instructors

The staff at Dance Connection focuses on embracing every child for who they are and providing them an open arms environment where they can explore their creativity and grow into healthy, positive and strong individuals.  Every student is expected to do their best… our teachers instill that in them very early in their study.  We believe that teaching is a life-long commitment full of love for dance.  When we combine this with an understanding that all children deserve the same opportunities to learn, it is amazing what children can accomplish!  Not only will Dance Connection provide your child with the best in his or her dance education, we will work to develop your whole child, complimenting his or her growth both in and out of the classroom.
