our mission

We teach dance and provide students with the resources to achieve any of their goals through a passion for learning.


dance education

PUSH provides age appropriate developmental learning of dance which will contribute to the overall physical and mental well-being of all students. Students will attain an ability to demonstrate various techniques with modern dance as their primary foundation. Dance contributes to the achievement of students by using visual, audio, and kinesthetic modalities, a powerful tool to provide an overall healthy activity.
