Our goal is to provide a professional and passionate faculty, master classes and varied performance opportunities for our students; whether their intent is studying for a career or solely for enjoyment. In addition, our hope is that each person becomes technically proficient as a dancer, singer, actor, musician or all of these, while learning the importance of how to connect with the audience, allowing them to feel all the emotion of what they do on stage. All this, while never forgetting that having a gift is wonderful, but sharing that gift to make our community a better place should be the ultimate goal. Art without humanity is emptiness.
Our state of the art performance center, located in Trumbull, Connecticut, has 13,000 square feet of new space. It is comprised of 5 dance studios (all with sprung flooring and professional audio systems), 4 music/voice studios, a black box theater, 2 lounges, kitchen and homework area, company lounge, girls and boys changing rooms and a professional costume shop – all in one convenient location with easy access to I-95, the 25 Connector, Merritt Parkway, Route 8 – a quick and easy commute from almost anywhere in Fairfield county and New Haven county. We are just minutes from the Trumbull Mall, and located just across the street are Planet Fitness, Tennis, Gymnastics and a Sports Center.
“I used to use dance to inform my life. Now I use life to inform my dance.” – Anna Halprin.
