At DanceArts our tagline is ‘We Move Your Heart’.
The Dalai Lama wrote, “It is vital that when educating our children’s brains that we do not neglect to educate their hearts.” to which we agree whole heartedly.
We know we are teaching our students to move their bodies, to enjoy movement and dance and to use their brains, and we know that at the heart of all of this is in fact, the heart itself.
With research indicating that girl’s confidence plummets by 30% between the ages of 8 and 14, it’s more important than ever to provide environments where mistakes are welcomed and failure is encouraged.
I’ve danced since I was three.
My mum was a dancer, and she wanted to share that with me. Like most little children, I skipped along happily to class, enjoying the mix of challenge and confidence that my ballet teacher weaved into my lessons.
When I started high school, dance changed for me.
