Keep In Step - August 2017
Dear Students and Families,
It is with great pride that I welcome you to the 36th year of The Dance Inn. Since 1983, our mission has been the same: to provide quality dance education that is affordable and convenient for all dancers, regardless of ability level. We are proud to have one of the most highly-respected dance training programs in the area, offering classes for recreational dancers as well as pre-professionals. Our three dance companies serve a youth, a teen and an adult population and our performances entertain thousands of people a year. We are committed to passing on the artistry and traditions of dance through programming that educates the whole dancer and inspires them to dance forever. Each of our faculty has participated in rewarding summer experiences that strengthen our dedication to teaching excellence.
Thank you for choosing The Dance Inn for your families' dance education.  We are committed to helping each dancer become the best they can be in a joyful, accepting and non-competitive environment.  On behalf of all my staff, enjoy these last few days of summer!  We'll see you soon!
