Mission Statement

At Southeast School of Dance, we provide the highest quality instruction in an energetic environment. We emphasize ballet technique to ensure dancers develop a strong foundation. Our program allows students to develop their individual artistry and explore their own creativity. In addition to creating strong dancers; we strive to equip our students with values like respect, discipline, and strong work ethic that will benefit them for years to come–in their personal and professional lives.

Philosophy

We strongly believe dance classes are essential for girls AND boys! Students develop a sense of responsibility, respect, positive self-image, and strong work ethic inside and outside the classroom. We offer classes in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Acro (similar to rhythmic gymnastics), Modern, and Hip Hop starting at age 2.5–including “Boys Only!” classes and Adult Dance Fitness classes. Class descriptions can be found below!

We believe ballet technique is the essential for any and all students who wish to become strong dancers and performers. We require dancers enrolled in technical styles (modern, jazz) to also enroll in ballet to ensure they are learning and practicing correct technique while learning how to avoid bad habits and injuries. We are proud to be the only studio in Southeast Greensboro that offers a full and comprehensive ballet program including Progressing Ballet Technique training, pointe work, and a full length ballet production (“story ballet”) at the conclusion of each season! Past productions include both classical ballets like Swan Lake and original productions unique to SESD repertoire (Magic Mirror, Into The Jungle).

We believe it is imperative that your child’s teacher is knowledgeable and trained properly. We confidently guarantee our instructors are carefully chosen and highly qualified. Our dance instructors hold degrees from UNCG and UNCSA dance departments and are PBT certified. Each instructor’s full bio can be found below.

We strive to provide an environment where students feel free to express themselves and explore new ideas, and share our love of dance so the “hard work” is fun! We believe each dancer should leave our studio prepared for whatever their future holds, whether that be a career as a professional dancer, world-renowned doctor, teacher…We strive to provide each student with the skill they need to live a long and happy life!

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance…”
