Heartbeat promotes a non-competitive dance environment
where instructors teach by encouragement – not by intimidation. We
are a performance studio and choose not to be involved with dance
competitions because we appreciate and advocate dance as an art
form and not a sport. Our focus is on correct
training and technique by professionals in the fields of dance and acting. We
provide performing opportunities throughout the year for all ages to share the
beauty and emotional and intellectual stimulation of dance with the public. We
also want to provide long-term, life enriching experiences in dance for our students.
Hand-in-hand with this is our goal to develop the dancers’ trust in dance
and to encourage them to take on the responsibility of raising the bar on their
own potential. Dance is more than a physical presence and we nurture a
truthful, not artificial, connection between the dancer and the audience. We
allow the dancers to immerse themselves in what is happening and to internalize
the dance because it is only then that it is real.
