Inspire Recreational Dance

 

The goal of our recreational dance program is to INSPIRE students to explore the world and develop a love and appreciation for the art of dance through fun, engaging, and interactive, hands-on training. Our recreational dance program is designed to give your child the foundations they need for dance and allow them to broaden their choices as they continue to explore the world of dance. We are a ballet-based program because ballet is the foundation for all styles of dance. Through the teaching of solid ballet technique, students will gain body awareness, coordination, strength, concentration & focus, and attention to detail.

Inspire Dance Company

 

Our Dance Company is a pre-professional competition team. We are a new dance company, and our goal is to help develop and train our dancers to compete as a team, in small group, and as soloists, at the highest level of competition. Dancers will be proficient in ballet, pointe, jazz, contemporary, and hip hop. This program is designed to give our dancers the training needed to go on to college and university dance programs, or to professional training programs.

Participation in the dance company is by invitation only, through an audition process. Auditions are held once a year in May. Anyone age 6 and up may audition for the company. A minimum of 2 years of ballet training is recommended.

Once accepted into the company, dancers will increase their training hours and are required to attend all dance company classes. Their dance training will be more focused and directed to help them achieve higher level skills. Dancers will train for the competitive level and participate in regional and national dance competitions. In addition to dance competitions, we are always looking for ways to share our dancers’ talents with the community.
