What sets us apart from other programs is that we focus on so much more than just dance, while maintaining a commitment to technical excellence. We value artistry over trophies and tricks. If your child loves dance and is ready for a greater commitment, community and an immersive dance experience, then our family of performance groups can help them on a positive path for success.
We believe in building confidence through dance. While some children enjoy recreational classes, we have noticed that some kids, even as young as 6 years old, want MORE! They watch the older dancers in our Company, they practice at home, they have innate talent and focus, and they want to perform all the time! We have two Crews to nurture this young talent and give young dancers quality training and expanded performance opportunities, while preparing them for our Student Dance Companies (for intermediate and advanced dancers 8+). Crew will help provide your child a sense of community, worthiness and a place to belong.
Crew nurtures young talent, provides mentorship, and begins instilling leadership skills in young dancers. We provide dancers quality training and expanded performance opportunities, while grooming them to audition for our Student Dance Companies. Crew will be an application/invitational process.
Brittany Sandoval is our CREW Director with Madeleine Schreifels joining the leadership team as we integrate jazz and technique into the CREW experience!

We are committed to creating PATHWAYS for our dancers where they can find their place at Dance Arts. We offer FREE one-on-one meetings for parent and dancer with Director Alana Tillim in April each year. She will help you explore your goals, whether it be working towards being a part of one of our performance groups, planning to audition for your local dance team, school play, or show choir. Beyond the class room, we believe in servant based leadership where dancers could be a classroom assistant, volunteering with younger students at our recital, or getting community service hours while learning about the business of running and sustaining dance programs at a local level.
