our vision

our vision
The School of the Arts is an extension of the National Museum of Dance, a non-profit organization, with a focus on teaching professional quality dance technique within a low pressure environment. Creating an enjoyable experience for our dancers and their families is one of our top priorities.

We focus on encouragement, cooperation and collaboration rather than criticism and competition. We also minimize recital requirements in order to focus on perfecting technique rather than preparing for performances.

The vision of the School of the Arts is to become the highest quality dance institute in the Capital Region. We strive to be the obvious choice for those seeking preparative training for formal instruction at an arts conservatory or university. SOA provides an enjoyable and positive environment for mainstream dance instruction for all ages.

We believe that participation in dance builds self-confidence, social skills, a healthy body and a positive self-image. We encourage dancers of all shapes, sizes and ages to participate in our programs knowing that they will be honored and respected for who they are.
