3-D DANCE At 3-D Dance, our mission is to partner with parents to grow great kids through dance. Through a dance education, students establish growth mindset, demonstrate integrity, and become responsible for their own learning! We see our students grow in dance and performance skills, self-confidence, physical health, self-motivation, and collaboration skills. Our curriculum fosters age-appropriate learning pathways to establish a framework for future learning, setting each student up for success in any future endeavor. Our youngest dancers are forming critical brain pathways and "learning to learn" through motor development and social-emotional development. Our older dancers are learning essential life skills to have the tools needed for success no matter what path they take in the future! Critical thinking skills, a coachable outlook, body positivity, character, and integrity building are all important pillars of our dance class environment.
