grow your skillset

different techniques make great dancers

Each genre of dance has its own vocabulary, unique nuances, and the ability to challenge dancers and enhance their skills. Learning a variety of dance techniques allows for versatility in the way the body translates movement and choreography. We offer a wide-range of different dance techniques to best serve our students.

We are committed to excellence

Our mission is to create and provide a space for dancers to enhance their personal and group artistic qualities and to support one another in fostering a sense of teamwork in the classroom. The Performing Arts Center is committed to developing well-prepared dancers recreationally and competitively. We support and assist in getting a child where they need to be should they pursue the arts professionally, collegiately, or simply for performance and enjoyment. At PAC, we understand each dancer is unique and has their own goals that will be fully supported.
