point of studying the Arts is to perform! Performing
gives students the confidence they need to succeed
in a professional career of any kind. Stage experience
is available to all performers throughout their
training at Dance Expressions, enabling them to
develop confidence, poise and stage manners. Our
dancers perform at in-studio viewing weeks; bring
a friend classes and creative showings during
the year. All students taking regular yearly (Sept
– June) classes at our studio also participate
in our Year End Shows.
Technique can hold back
the most artistic dancer or give him/her greater
expression. With the proper instruction, any child
can learn proper technique and perform beautifully.
Building discipline, developing strength and stamina,
and achieving grace in movement is the work of
years of study; a process that really never ends.
At Dance Xpressions, we believe building this
foundation will give our students the tools to
pursue any avenue of dance they so choose.
Every child benefits from
quality dance training, even though he or she
ultimately may choose another career path. In
Dance, children learn the cooperative teamwork
necessary to produce a high quality work of art.
They develop creative thinking skills and the
ability to push themselves to higher achievements.
These skills will enhance your child's academic
performance as well as their physical well-being.
Self-confidence and self-esteem continue to develop
as each young dancer conquers new movements and
grows more certain of his or her ability to apply
themselves, work hard, and master any new steps.
We believe that in building the students’
self-esteem, and if it is agreed that dancing
competitively will help them achieve these goals,
the studio will support those endeavours. Competition
gives our students the opportunity to take chances
and reach different goals, but is not the focal
point, or gauge of success in the eyes of the
teachers of Dance Xpressions.
Our teachers share ideas for the benefit of our
school and all of our students. Many teachers
can pass along steps, but a truly experienced,
professional teacher can guide a young performer
through the gradual process of carefully training
their body; helping them achieve an instrument
that is technically strong, allowing freedom of
movement, and the capability of executing even
the most rigorous exercises with grace and style.
