Our business centers attention on the secondary, but emerging dance studio market, the recreational-community-after school enrichment student, with programs designed to increase enrollment, engage current students, and deliver financial studio success.


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 Education 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.
