Our studio was founded in 2001 by Director, Shanna Becker. Our mission is to inspire and educate students in dance and performance arts, with a technical foundation, and a focus on artistry and expression. Our ballet classes utilize the Vaganova method of ballet training, with some principles from Cechetti and Balanchine methods also explored.
Our season involves two performances annually; with a winter production of "Clara's Dream" held in December, and a spring recital held in May.
Our new company program is in development and is projected to begin in January 2021.
