Parents and Born 2 Perform family, we are so grateful for all of your support in being a part of fulfilling our Mission to foster an environment that speaks to quality and clarity in both academic standards and performance with a focus to enable the next generation of artists to speak with distinction about themselves through the cultural language of dance. To that end, we are committed to providing our students with informative, fun, and physically stimulating instruction while boosting self-confidence within a safe atmosphere where students learn, broaden, and expand their understanding and technical skills.

We also thank you for believing in our Vision to be the Premier Dance Destination for students seeking to reach the next level in their dance training. We utilize every avenue to connect with current national and international industry dance professionals. We maintain this connection while highlighting the extensive backgrounds of guest teachers, adjunct instructors, and faculty instructors developing mentorships throughout the arts community for students aspiring to become professional dance artists. Promoting quality instruction from trained professionals with extensive performance backgrounds is essential to continuing our mission of training the next generation of dance arts professionals.
