Our Mission

Dance Effects is committed to providing professional quality dance training to students of all ages in an environment that is safe, welcoming, and nurturing. We work to develop each dancers technical and performance skills while inspiring creativity, building self confidence, and developing strong work ethics inside and outside of the studio. We believe the positive effects of dance are endless!

We believe it is the combination of artistry and physicality, technique and heart, that makes dance so powerful and separates it from other sports. Dancers must become athletes and artists. We work to provide a well-rounded dance education that develops the dancer's technical skills and performance qualities, and focuses on keeping kids kids. Our classes, curriculum, performances, and costumes promise to be family-friendly and always age-appropriate.
