About Maxine’s Dance Studio LLC
Our Prime Directives and Philosophies
Our mission, since our inception in 1971 has been to introduce students to classical ballet and dance in a positive, motivating, learning environment where students receive the highest standards of ballet and dance instruction, choreography, and performing experience. We provide for the non-professional and professional student, intensive training at the level of his or her potential. We believe that there is no greater training in the performing arts than classical ballet. The concentration, memorization, and discipline associated with ballet increases one’s mental capabilities and the music, grace and beauty will enrich their lives.
Our programmed syllabus (Curriculum) provides quality training in CLASSICAL BALLET, POINTE, JAZZ, MODERN DANCE, HIP HOP, LYRICAL and TAP DANCING. The student will develop body awareness, rhythm, self-confidence, poise, discipline, dedication, and determination.
Here at this studio, we strive to allow the developing dancer to find how his or her body can approach the technique, and how the body matures to grow technically in a safe, progressive way… to feel the dancing from within. Our student classes allow plenty of time for imagination and exploration, even as the student is mastering the basic concepts. It must be remembered that ballet is only learned through many years of disciplined training and repetition of basic skills. For the older student we continue to emphasize the hows and whys of technique, so that safe work habits, personal responsibility, and concentration become second nature. Our goal is to give the student dancers the tools of mind and body that they will need to become either a professional dancers or a lifelong friend of the arts, while providing a supportive atmosphere for their endeavors. These are your children. We appreciate the opportunity to share the excitement, beauty and challenges of dance with them. We are committed to the belief that dance ads depth and texture to our lives, creative energy, gracefulness and heightened awareness of the arts. Quality dance training is within reach of you and your family.
