Why a dance school?

The incentive to move is a natural, unconscious reaction to all the forces that act on our bodies. We are always moving. When holding a still shape, you are moving - the muscles that maintain your heart pumping and keep you breathing do not stop their pattern of tension and release. Movement is a measure of life, but movement is not essentially dance.

Dance is a deliberate activity that involves purpose, intentional rhythm, culturally movement of aesthetic and inherent value; all these make dance an art rather than a sport or a coincidence. Dance is an art that uses nonverbal movement in an amazing way to create a form, order, or statement. Dance discovers the physical, emotional, and social forces that act on a body to disclose a sense of those forces, either for personal benefit or the benefit of an audience. To study dance is to study our nature and to discover the personal dimensions of physical, social, and emotional strength, generosity, and wisdom.
Studying dance you will discover each of those factors, and, in doing so, you will learn something about your self.

During your study of dance you will find out three aspects: the dancer, the choreographer, and the viewer. You will explore more about your body's limits and abilities. You will investigate not only physical but also social, emotional, and spiritual facets of yourself.
