At Inspire Dance Arts, we employ highly trained, loving and positive teachers, so that your child feels welcomed and encouraged! We want your child to receive the best quality training in the dance room, as well as provide dancers with the emotional support they need to succeed! Classes focus on teaching proper technique from day one, so that dancers can build the proper skills and gain confidence on the dance floor.


We strive to teach everything in a way that is creative, fun and positive, so that dancers will be excited to come back each week, have a great time, and make friends. We believe personal development is paramount, and our faculty is there to support each dancer's journey, whether they are taking one class or six!
