Mission Statement
At Legacy Dance Studio our program is designed for your dancer to grow individually. We are dedicated to offering classes with a high standard of technique, style and performance. Through discipline, encouragement and hard work, excellence can be achieved by gradually increasing subjects studied and expanding performance opportunities for our students. In order to accomplish these goals, core values in integrity, respect, responsibility, character and professionalism must be maintained.

Teaching Philosophy
It is the philosophy of Legacy Dance Studio to embrace movers at all levels and ages. Our intention is to create a structured, loving, creative environment where students are inspired to express themselves through the art of dance. We use a process oriented curriculum that builds upon the foundations of ballet, tap and jazz dance to create a safe, strong foundation for our students to flourish as they grow and discover their inner dancer. Dance education goes further than just the dance steps, at Legacy students will learn proper body alignment, technique, terminology, and the basic fundamentals needed to pursue dancing in college or professionally.

Classes Begin the last Monday of August and conclude with the presentation of our Showcase in June.

All Legacy Parents will have an online account through Dance Studio Pro. Please expect to receive emails, texts and phone calls through this account. Please login in frequently to stay up to date on the latest information.
