Artist development is a private dance lesson; the students will work one-on-one with an instructor, receiving personalized instruction and immediate correction. For students who are hesitant to join the group classes, this program will help build confidence in their movement and in themselves. This service is also perfect for up coming artists who want performance workshops. We have an excellent artist development program that will increase one’s stage presence and movement. With our very fresh and personal approach, we combine imagination and innovation with swagger to make you look and feel good about yourself and your performance.
