Dance improves co-ordination and balance and instills discipline to the mind and body. It is a highly technical form of art, that demands expression through movement and requires years of proper training to develop such skills. Unfortunately there are no short cuts. Strengthening and stretching muscles, correct body alignment, control and balance, focus and dynamics as well as disciplining the mind to understand the complexity of step combinations, are all part of correct dance training. To learn takes time and error and therefore we must insist on a process of slow measured and monitored development of a student to ensure both health and technical proficiency. There is no instant perfection in learning to dance. Students can enjoy the art form while cultivating a love of music and if nothing else, acquire grace, poise and confidence, which will put them ahead of their peers!
As Director and Principal Choreographer of Sheridan's Studio 1, I welcome you and trust you will enjoy your time spent here. May you always have happy memories of your dancing years...
