Dance Directions Philosophy, Policy And Schedule
Dance Directions is the home school of
ecarte dance theatre


Dance Directions seeks to nurture the growth of each individual student on a personal, artistic and technical level through the art of dance. Believing ballet to be the foundation for a trained dancer, Dance Directions offers ballet classes for ages 4 through mature adult. 

Observation Policy

Dance Directions invites family and friends to observe the students' technical progress during the two scheduled observation weeks. Classes are closed to observers at other times unless special arrangements are made with the director.

Performance Policy

Dance Directions Studio is the home of ecarte dance theatre, a contemporary ballet and modern dance company. Because ecarte's philosphy embraces the unique gifts of each dancer, all students in the school are invited to participate in ecarte's two major performances as novices or apprentices. Senior company members must audition with the artistic director. Auditions are open to all dancers in the area, ages 15 and over, who are currently enrolled in a minimum of two ballet classes per week.
