We are a non-competition dance studio.
We believe that no one should ever be told they cannot dance because of skill level, weight, age, ethnicity or background. If you want to dance, DANCE!!! Dance should be a fun experience which inspires self expression and self confidence. At our studio, we focus on self improvement and growth, not competitive performances where one dancer is viewed as being “better”. Each dancer is viewed as a “shining star” at our studio.
Our goal is to create a fun and exciting learning experience through dance. We teach dance focusing on proper technique, discipline, and musicality while encouraging self expression and confidence. We feel that our students should respect each other and are always encouraged to be proud of who they are. Our dance classes promote an enjoyable workout as we learn how the body works and what anatomical structures are being used to carryout each movement. Each child should have fun and must leave class with a smile on their face, truly feeling good about themselves.
I encourage everyone to participate in this opportunity to support our children and school district. Despite overwhelming research regarding the benefits of full day kindergarten, the Caldwell-West Caldwell district does not offer it due primarily to lack of space. Additionally, having smaller class sizes will benefit all of the children and allow them to feel confident about learning and encourage participation and self expression. This is very important in raising strong, smart, confident children who are prepared to conquer the world.
If you’d like to support the full day kindergarten effort and connect with other parents in the district, I’d recommend joining the “Full Day Kindergarten in Caldwell / West Caldwell” group on Facebook:

Thank you for your support on these important matters regarding our children! I believe the children are our future… Sing it Whitney:
