Our Mission

"Dance calls upon the dancer, the teacher, and the viewer to broaden their perspective and welcome the possibility of exploration and evolution. Dance provides a lifetime of curiosity and cultivates an intimate joy with yourself and the world."       

-Jamie Brege-DeVito, Academy Director

We believe that dance is an innate human expression and an essential human experience. Dance has the power to unite a person with themself. It has the power to connect individuals to a community. Dancing provides an opportunity for a deeper, more enriching life. Our classes, our faculty, and the community we create serve as a launchpad into the beautiful world of dance.

Participation in a quality dance education helps students learn:

  • Creativity

  • Musicality 

  • Self - Expression

  • Teamwork

  • Commitment

  • Focus

  • Perseverance

  • Physical Awareness

Our Approach

With a thoughtful, student-centered approach, our faculty guides each student through a developmentally appropriate curriculum  - making space for exploration and creativity alongside technique. While rooted in ballet, the exposure to a variety of dance forms allows for dancers to have a broad experience that will serve them well wherever dance may take them.
