Dance

Thank you for looking into our dance classes!

We offer many styles here at Academy of Arts Mexico. During the week we have ballet, jazz, folklorico, and hip hop. On Saturdays we have our creative movement class, along with our technique class, and the pom and lyrical classes.

At Academy of Arts Mexico, we want to do more than just teach our students how to dance, how to paint, or how to play an instrument. We want to teach our students commitment, discipline, and confidence. Coming to class every day, paying attention, learning new skills, makes not only a dancer but it makes a very well rounded human being. It teaches them, that when they make a commitment to come to class, they should always come. In class we work on self discipline, students will learn  how to correct actions and movements. They will be more self aware about how they move around other students, along with how they move within time and space. There is a certain confidence you get when you dance. The confidence that comes from dance doesn’t only show during performances. It comes from finally mastering a movement or a sequence. There is always a “YES!” moment in every few classes where a student who had been working hard to execute a movement, finally nails it. It’s a wonderful experience to be a part of.
