We also offer classes in drama where students learn all aspects of the theater culiminating in a drama performance.

Tick Tick Boom! A Note from Mandy:
"Way to represent! Way to work hard! Way to dedicate your time, your patience, your flexibility, your loyalty, your talent, your imagination, your ability to dance through the pain...it inspires others to move forward, to dream of something better. You make us want to face our fears, to take on something larger than anyone of us. On that blank canvas where you reveal your ability to light the stage, I think of your parents/brothers/sisters/ etc....watching you with their fingers covering their faces wishing and hoping that you nail every step. The stress of watching you dance is at times unbearable. Dancers be sure you thank your families! They stand behind you, supporting you mentally and financially. When you come together as a team nothing is impossible.
"Nothing is impossible, the word in itself says, I'm possible."
TICK! TICK! BOOM! 109 for life!"
