To inspire creativity and love for dance while teaching discipline and helping each dancer to achieve their desired goals and fullest potential.
Proper dance training gives students the opportunity to become well-rounded individuals through learning discipline, work ethic, and an appreciation for the arts. At Infinity Dance Academy, the development of dance technique is valued equally to the development of each student's character. This is done by promoting healthy competition while keeping an environment of encouragement.
Whether it be recreationally, competitively, or professionally, Infinity Dance Academy has a program to fit each student’s needs. Infinity’s instructors are well-versed in different areas of dance, and place an emphasis both on proper technique, and expression/exploration of creativity.
Infinity Dance Academy desires to inspire young men and women to be the best they can personally be; people who are confident, kind, determined, and who have the tools they need to be successful in life and dance.
