Our mission is to teach each student to work passionately but also to contribute something to the lives of others through their creative expression.  It is our goal that each dancer developes not only as an artist, but more importantly, they will have developed as strong,  gracious human beings who also aspire to be positive role models.

 

Confidence

Our teachers and staff are devoted to providing dancers of all ages an encouraging environment where they are given the opportunity to grow and excel in their dance education and performing arts.

Strength

 We strive to deliver the highest quality of dance training and theatrical training, while nurturing each student’s unique gift of talent and creativity. 

BALANCE

We wish to encourage our students to achieve their fullest potential – to support them as they grow artistically and develop into well-rounded individuals – nourished in body, mind and spirit.

May our dance always be a bridge to understanding. May our dance always be a celebration of diversity. May our dance always be an instrument for peace.

Pat Jackson was a dance educator who was presented the Bob Fosse Educator Award in L.A. in 1997. This scholarship is being given in her honor. Pat was positive, inspiring, and a loving dance instructor that didn’t just motivate thousands of students in dance, but motivated and inspired others to live life to it’s fullest and follow their dreams. Everyone who met her felt a special energy and love she had for all of mankind. Pats legacy still lives on in the hearts of her dancers. Pat’s philosophy and love for dance is still very much alive at Dance Ten.
