About Our Method

There is no "one way" to learn to dance.  Along your journey you will find many sources of influence and inspiration to enhance your dancing.  None of which are wrong however, some of which are better than others depending on the results you are looking for.  We encourage our dancers to critically think about how and why we apply concepts and techniques and never to blindly accept instruction without purpose or intention.
