136 mission statement
Every child who studies dance- no matter theiR ability, background or skill level... deserves to be taught patiently, mindfully and correctly.
We, at Studio 136, value the quality of a well-rounded, enriching and meaningful dance education. Every member of our staff is honored to share our love and passion for dance with our students. We create a warm, safe and family oriented environment. One of our main goals is to foster a love and appreciation for dance. The staff, as a whole, is highly trained, certified and/or experienced in many genres of dance. We pride ourselves on providing technical and proper training in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, acrobatics, hip hop (including an ALL BOYZ class), stretch/conditioning. lyrical/contemporary, & improv. Some of our instructors are also certified in fitness programs: Zumba, TRX (which we have authentic TRX equipment installed at our studio), & barre fitness. We teach age 2 two through adults at all levels. In addition, we have both competitive and recreational programs.
We teach each individual at his/her level and differentiate in order for each student to reach his/her fullest potential. In addition to the physical benefits of dance... our students grow socially, emotionally, cognitively and creatively, as well. Many times, we see such amazing friendships blossom and self confidence increase! We experience students stepping out of their comfort zones and thinking “outside the box”. We love to see the whole child/teen grow through our dance program.
The art of dance has been a important and driving part of our lives. We truly put our hearts, souls and time into planning, creating, choreographing, researching, taking part in professional development in order to provide a top notch learning environment. We continue to learn and grow, along with all of our students in order to improve our dance programs. We are inspired every day by our “kids”, “teens” & “adults”... we a proud and honored to teach each person that comes though our doors! Come and join our dance family... dance with us!
