ABOUT US

We provide high quality dance instruction in a nurturing, positive, and creative environment. With an elite, pre-professional program, and a recreational dance program, each student will find the right training for their dance goals. Our company classes are designed to inspire, engage, and excite young minds and give them the building blocks to pursue a professional career. Our recreational classes are for students who love to dance, but not as intensely, and provide the same level of quality instruction and enthusiasm. All dancers are embraced at WNCDA where our goal is to help you become the dancer you were meant to be.

WNC DANCE COMPANY

The WNC Dance Company is a performance and competition company geared towards focused dancers wanting to concentrate on professional dance. Our amazingly talented company instructors and choreographers have been instrumental in getting our students placed in professional dance companies, commercial dance jobs, and well respected university and high school dance departments. WNC Dance Company gives dancers the motivation to become stronger artists and more self assured individuals. The students spend the school year taking a wide variety of dance styles and perfecting choreography created on them by award winning choreographers. They use the pieces they are rehearsing as tools to perfect technique, learn the skill of working within a group, and to become confidant performing artists. The company participates in 3 competitions a year and can be seen on local stages,festivals, and fundraisers. Stage time is what makes the difference between a great performer and a timid one, our goal is to make our dancers prepared and confident that they have received the advance training required to purse a professional career in dance.

Recreational Dance

Let loose your little one’s inner dancer! Every child loves the feeling of movement and every parent loves a place where their child can channel that energy into something constructive. At WNC Dance Academy, we believe that dance is the stuff of which dreams are made.

There is no better way to learn discipline, the meaning of focus and the reward of hard work than in dance. Dance training creates great academic students while providing fun, healthy exercise. Being trained from a young age about attention to detail and how to not only accept but crave constructive criticism provides the building blocks for a successful young adult.

On top of all of that, we have fun! Our students love one another and build relationships poised to last throughout childhood and beyond. With experienced, professional teachers guiding the class with attention to proper alignment and technique, your little dancer is sure to get the very most out of their first dance experience. Our young students can take ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap, conditioning, or all of the above! Ask about mini performing company opportunities as well.

"Dance is the hidden language of the soul"

Martha Graham

"I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself."

Mikhail Baryshnikov

“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
