“My heart is so full because I get to share a sport that played such an important role in my life with others. Twirling has taught me more than how to spin, catch, and release.

I seek to cultivate an environment in which students might reap the benefits of discipline, yet be empowered to learn and pursue individual goals, be recognized for individual achievements, and experience the beauty of dance."
-Mariana Blessing, Dance Educator
"Dance expresses the most raw, authentic, vulnerable facets of the human soul. This is perhaps the greatest risk anyone could take-- to be seen as we truly are. Therefore, as dance educators, it is our job to create a safe place for young dancers to take courageous steps of risk, leading them to become the wholehearted artists they are meant to be."
-Alli Franken, Dance Educator
