Philosophy

No exclusion

Dance is well known as a special aid for developing mind, body, and spirit and an optimal means to express feelings and canalize emotions. That is why DanzArt team believes that, no matter the skills, abilities or disabilities, sex or age, EVERYONE should be given the opportunity to experience the joy of dance and the benefits of disciplining the mind and body through this form of art.

Best effort and high quality training

It is also DanzArt’s strong belief that anything worth doing is worth doing right, and that even less talented students shall be taught to pursue excellence to the best of their abilities. Consistent with this believe, DanzArt encourages and inspires each student to their very best effort, and in return, provides the care, direction, and attention each student deserves. But in order to demand effort, commitment and excellence from dancers, it is imperative to provide quality instruction and a strong foundation in dance which they will surely apply in whatever manner they wish as they pursue their lives.

Discipline through dance

DanzArt believes as well that through the structured and disciplined dance training, students will learn about music, rhythm and beat, gain a better understanding of spatial relationships, learn to think with both sides of their brain, develop creative thinking skills and increase their ability to push themselves to higher achievements. Self-discipline, self-motivation, self-confidence and self-esteem will develop as each dancer conquers new movements and grows more certain of his or her ability to work hard and master new steps, enabling the student to excel in everyday life.

Confidence and cooperative work through performance

Danzart further believes that dance is a performing art and is meant to be shared. Performing gives students the confidence they need to succeed in a professional career of any kind, but also teach them the cooperative teamwork necessary to produce a high quality work of art.

Dance is joy and fun

And, most importantly, DanzArt believes that dance is joy and thus strives to make dance training fun and enjoyable and to translate every training session not only in an educational and challenging experience, but in a pleasant and memorable moment, capable of building in students love and passion for the art of dance.
