We believe that everyone is an artist. We develop our students’ natural artistry and musicality to enhance their creativity and self-expression. Our instructors possess a genuine love for the magic of dance and a gift for instilling this in others. With encouragement to explore myriad forms of dance, our students have many opportunities to discover their passion.
We believe that the art of dance has the power to influence and effect changes in the world. Messages like anti-bullying, that are meaningful to the community, underlie all of our work. It is through the creation and presentation of evocative choreographies and experiences that we educate and guide our students as well as engage and enlighten our audiences.
Shaping the future
We shape our programs to nurture the power of imagination, leading children to become creative, well-rounded and productive adults. This fosters innovative approaches to problem-solving that can be used throughout their lives, benefitting society and changing the world.
Health and safety
From our 6″ sprung floors (which minimize the effect of impact over time) to promoting overall wellness, the health of our students is our top priority. Our curriculum emphasizes physical and emotional well-being at all stages of growth and learning.
Benefits of dance.
Here are some of the wonderful benefits that studying with us has to offer:
• Increased hand-eye coordination, body awareness, balance, strength, and flexibility
• Improved concentration, memory, listening skills, attention span, and discipline
• Enhanced confidence, self-esteem, creativity, expression, and character-building
• Enhanced group synergy, team and community-building experiences
Performance is an important aspect of the artistic training process. A large portion of the year is spent developing dance skills and techniques, culminating in an original creative production at the end of the year. All ages and levels come together to feel the enchantment of the theatre, and the magic of performing on stage.
Many of our students have become professionals and continue to share their knowledge and their passion with the next generation of artists. Boogaloo Academy forms lasting connections with dancers, musicians and artists. We empower each individual who walks through our doors to have a voice and shape the culture of dance and art.
