EXPECTATIONS For Dance Teacher Training Seminars

Our dance classroom model is patterned after the famed Intel Teach to the Future Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation program for public educators creating a “backwards by design” approach to the dance classroom for private studios, schoool dance teams and enrichment programs.


The EXPECTATIONS For Dance™ is an achievement, adjudication, and assessment tool for the global dance classroom. The PETITE PIROUETTE DANCE™ seminar focuses on students grades PK-2  on the recreational-community-enrichment level who study up to 3 hours weekly.  SKILLS Sport-Dance Games™ Seminar the leading national alternative to studio dance competitions, where the focus is on learning not winning.
