We love you and are so happy we were able

to surprise you on your 35th year!

Mission Statement: I’m Karen Sachs and I’d like to thank you for your interest in our dance academy. I began teaching in 1980 and over the years, I have developed a philosophy of teaching dance. I believe that through dance, a child can learn rhythm, grace, balance, and most importantly, self-confidence. While learning these things, children need to have fun and enjoy themselves, while also being challenged. 

It’s a delicate balance that we teachers strive for; enjoyment, education, and pride in a job well done. Yes, we want your children to have fun, but we also want for them to learn all that we have to teach. We never know where our experiences may lead us.

Thank you, 
Karen Sachs, Director
