Dance embodies one of our most primal relationships to the universe. It is pre-verbal, beginning before words can be formed. It is innate in children before they possess command over language and is evoked when thoughts or emotions are too powerful for words to contain.
Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and is performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes dance.
A few of the many benefits children gain from participating in a regularly scheduled dance lesson benefits:
Here at Backstage we offer many different styles of dance for children age 18 months through 18 years of age.
The best part of our programs is that we offer “options”. Students may join us just for the love and education of dance without participating in any performances or they may choose to gain stage experience. This is always optional. Students may also be a part of our BDC family as recreational students or they may choose to participate in a more serious and committed company program.
