At From A Dancer’s Pointe, we seek to enrich our students’ artistic and personal growth; to nurture and develop the students’ technique in a supportive and professional manner as well as experiencing the enjoyment and fulfillment a dancer can achieve through the art of dance. Our goal is to help students discover what they are physically and artistically capable of and how they can gain focus, discipline, and dedication which will, in turn, transcend through to everyday aspects of life. We believe that a dancer must set personal goals that will enable them to gain a sense of responsibility and pride in their abilities. We hope that all of our students and their families will be provided with the education and inspiration necessary to enjoy a loving and nurturing dance environment. As a school we are dedicated to helping each student achieve physical excellence and personal discipline, while exploring the art of dance. We believe that through a systematic and step-by-step training program, the student will develop positive self-esteem by achieving clearly established goals. We recognize that each student possesses different strengths and we encourage them to reach for their own personal goals. We believe this develops strong life skills. Our curriculum also includes a competitive performance company that enhances the student’s ability to work together as a team, build camaraderie and to learn dedication and trust towards other. The reward for performing is the personal satisfaction gained from the response of an audience. Performance opportunities will be available to all those who are interested in auditioning. The challenges of dancing promote self-discipline, pride, and confidence by balancing physical development and mental attitude.
