You never know what you can do until you try! We think that every child should dream big and live a full life. We teach dance because we love it! We feel blessed to do what we love. At the studio, we balance education with fun and excitement. Children learn best when they are enjoying what they are being taught. At Danse Et Plus, we instill in each child that "If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it.” Jesse Jackson
