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.
Educating the mind, or the body without educating the heart is no education at all. We want our students to know they belong and we want to develop within them soft skills such as compassion, love, understanding and kindness. These soft skills are actually quite hard, and students benefit from exposure and encouragement whenever possible. We do this through intentional use of language, through living our values and through each interaction we have with our students. We know that our teachers are role models – sharing their own experiences and facilitating movement of the heart (and body) within each and every class, regardless of the age of the student or the style of dance.
Our studio is not made up of four walls but rather the hearts within it. We hope to have the opportunity to move your heart soon.
