Our goal is for this blog to be a place

  • Where dancers receive the tools and information they need to become the best dancers they can possibly be

  • Where dance history and knowledge is shared

  • Where current dancers, dance instructors, and former dancers can connect and share their experiences.

  • Where parents can share their experiences, tips, and stories about being dance parents.
