- Peaceful, kind studio. No fighting and no bullying or negative comments about others. No fighting among students, staff, or parents. Many times the fighting comes from studios that compete for who is best or who gets a certain role, minimizing the ego and supporting the spirit is what makes our studio happy.
- Dance is an art form that speaks to the spirit, not the ego. This studio is aligned with beautiful dances that come from the heart. This studio is not about: who got first place; who is better than someone else; who can do more turns or tricks; who will win on some show (which is all up to fate and different pathways that anyone can take – not just who is the best). Dance performed on stage is a group effort (not individual). My dance studio is designed to teach the love of dance and learning it for future use, i.e. scholarships to colleges, becoming a dance teacher or dance education or dance therapist.
- Support for everyone in the dance room. Applauding good effort for your dance friends/team when they accomplish a goal or gain in their dance technique
- A winning combination is 50/50. That means 50% teacher/choreographer and 50% dancer. We can train and give the movements and the dancer has to work hard, take it in, and create from that to present their talents. Never forget where you came from and who helped you get there. All of our teachers put our whole hearts into each student and teach them with support.
- It is important that dancers from this studio are respectful: 1) to their teachers, 2) to each other, 3) to the dance form they are learning, i.e. ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop or contemporary - honoring each dance form and the history of each and all of the famous role models, 4) to the studio and the space that is provided for learning.
