Mission

Share the world of Dance

By providing technical training in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere. Our mission is for Dance Institute studentes to have a well-rounded dance education. We are dedicated to our students' self-assurance, poise, and confidence.

Our Philosophy

Dance Institute focuses on the advantages an education in dance has for young people.

Benefits of dance include self-confidence, self-awareness, physical fitness, dedication and achievement.  Dance Institute's philosophy is grounded in these benefits.  Students will learn dance as an art in a non-competitive environment.  Students at Dance Institute will receive a diverse dance education.  By offering classes that teach a combination of dance disciplines students will be exposed and trained in multiple forms of dance.  

What sets us apart

Parental Viewing

Dance Institute welcomes parents to view classes.  We want you to see what your child is learning and offer comfortable chairs in a designated viewing area.

Affordable Classes

We offer combination classes so that students receive a well-rounded dance education without the expense of attending multiple classes.

Non-competitive Atmosphere

No student or group of students receive more performing focus than others. All performances are community focused.

Community Focused

We perform at many community events, and retirement homes. We donate show proceeds to local schools as well as raise funds for local charities.

Parental Involvement

The Dance Institute Parent Organization (DIPO) is designated to create community within the school.  Parent involvement is key to success in any education.

Structured Curriculum

The Dance Institute school year runs September through June with a recital in June.  Students will "graduate" in June into the classes starting the following September.  

Testimonials

  • Dance with Miss Michele is the highlight of my (4 year old) daughter’s week. This is her second year dancing and, not only does she continue to love it, but also she is learning all the basics at a young age. Michele does a great job meeting her young students where they are and steadily teaching them skills, poise, and positions while they smile and dance the hour away.

    - Sarah B.

  • My daughter has grown up with a love of dance from a young age thanks to 5+ years with Dance Institute LLC and Ms. Michele. Dance Institute LLC has offered the perfect balance for our young dancer — great instruction and progressive growth with a relaxed, family-friendly, non-competitive atmosphere. I highly recommend Ms. Michele and Dance Institute LLC!

    - Lauren Still

  • My daughter has been taking dance with Ms. Michele for two years now and she absolutely adores her classes. Dance Institute LLC has instilled a sense of responsibility into my daughter’s week. She is confident and compassionate and these traits are reinforced through positive praise in Ms. Michele’s classes. Thank you for all your hard work Ms. Michele!
