Dance is an art! Our mission is to preserve and pass on that art. To instill the sense of expression, beauty and freedom that dance inspires. And to honor the History and traditions that define dance as an art
Ann's has a full school year of classes based on technical training to build skills and learn new steps. Focus is on training the body, teaching posture, traditional use of head, arms (Ports de bras), exercises for quick movements, maintaining turnout, and knowledge of steps. In the process of following traditional dance etiquette in class, students learn life lessons that stay with them, give them confidence and assist in other parts of their life. Classes are small (limited to 10) and students receive a lot of individualized training. Dancers are awarded medals and trophies for various years of training. Many start at age 3 and continue until graduation from High School. Ann has been training dancers for 50 years and many bring their children back because of the experience and memories they have with Ann.
