DanceSport is not only a great physical exercise, but also gives confidence, strength and positive energy helping to face challenges children are dealing with today. DanceSport teaches youth many different aspects such but not limited to: physical fitness, body development, performance, music & movement, art & culture.

Working in a group towards a common goal such as a recital or competition, teaches young dancers sportsmanship in addition to a respect for their teammates and be a helping hand to their partner.
