OUR STUDENTS have achieved rich lives in which their early dance experience has played an important role – whether they have become dancers or not. Those who wanted a professional career have become members of such major ballet and modern dance companies as The Kirov Ballet in Russia, David Dorfman, Shen Wei, Oklahoma Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet and Fort Worth Ballet. They have become Rockettes and earned titles all the way up to Miss America and Mrs. America.
OUR FACULTY consists of professional adults who know and love their craft and who know and love children. Among us we have over a century of teaching experience.
OUR HISTORY is rich with a tradition of excellence combined with a family focus. For 64 years we have aimed to provide the highest quality dance training in Western North Carolina, in an atmosphere that encourages not just the art of dance, but the arts of humanity: kindness, generosity, cooperation, and affection for each other. We are a team.
We are one of Asheville’s oldest and strongest non-profit arts organizations. We thrive because we believe that bigger is not better – good is better. And because we live here year-round, we can perform monthly, weekly, daily, to help fulfill our community’s artistic needs.
Your Dance Servant,
