S&S School of Dance aims to be a studio that can fulfill the dreams of the recreational dancer as well as inspire and challenge the technique-driven dancer. Our overall purpose is for all of our students to aspire to be someone great inside and outside of the dance world. We want to build our students up through hard-work and dedication, teach them how to be professional and respectful, and most of all, instill self-confidence so they can be successful traveling down whichever path they choose to follow in the future.
Through hard work and determination, dancers will learn what it takes to achieve goals and reach success. These experiences will encourage our dancers to have ambitions throughout all aspects of life.
We hope our dancers become individuals who represent high levels of personal integrity, leadership, and responsibility for oneself and others. Through dance, we aim to instill the courage and willingness to face issues and concerns with maturity and dignity. It is important to learn to avoid gossip, criticism, or disparaging comments for any member of the dance community, parents, or peers.
As soon as you walk through the doors of S&S School of Dance, you become family. All dancers, staff, and parents are treated like family with kindness, open communication, and love. We aim to create a welcoming environment for all to feel included and important. Dancers will build friendships that will last a life time.
The dance studio is not a place for negativity; it is a place for love and positivity to thrive. S&S School of Dance will operate with a “leave it at the door” mentality. This teaches students to find the good in the bad and forget about the negative things that only bring individuals down. This promotes a safe and nurturing educational environment for all.
We expect all students and staff to operate in a professional manner. All students and staff are expected to follow the dress code and arrive to dance class prepared and on time. These expectations in the dance studio will prepare students to meet and succeed expectations outside of the studio.
All staff members are expected to respect all students and parents. Students and parents are expected to reciprocate. Inside the studio, students will learn to respect their peers as well as gain their own self-respect. The understanding of respect will influence our students’ lives at school and in future endeavors.
