The program taught by our experts is designed to encourage a lifelong appreciation for dance, social interaction and a focus on fitness. Our mission is to help children and teenagers achieve their potential through dance and cultivate in them a love and appreciation for dance to last a lifetime.

The ideal age to begin learning dancing is 5-6 years. Ballroom dance is a highly coordinated type of dance sport and therefore requires a specific physical preparation, in particular: stretching, choreography, movements created to improve coordination and flexibility, strengthening of legs, feet, back and arm muscles.
