These opportunities build well rounded dancers who will be successful in the world of dance.
At Infinity Dance Company, the development of dance technique is valued equally to the development of each student's character. This is done by promoting appropriateness both in costuming and music choices, giving back to the community, promoting healthy competition while keeping an environment of encouragement and by teaching each student the importance of good work ethic.
Teaching dance is more than teaching good technique.
