Mission Statement

Above all this is a place of dancing
For those who choose or cannot help
But put their body and heart and mind
To the test

Remember it is your own test
Do with it what you will
Take it to the world
Or keep it here, just for yourself

Know that to dance alone is enough
The rest are choices

We are all connected here
Young and old, expert and novice
Famous and aspiring
In all dance’s various styles and faces

Connected by a common thread
To the interior of ourselves
Via the vehicle of the physical
Connecting with our world more deeply
By connecting more deeply with ourselves

Respect the dance
Respect its dancers
Respect yourself

We have made our own world within these walls
Driven by movement and music,
Strength and love

Create what you will
Welcome to the new Millennium
