Teaching dance is definitely at the forefront, but inspiring each student to be creative, be confident and to believe in themselves is just as important! The staff at Carroll Manor Dance is very caring and devoted. Many of the teachers not only have extensive dance backgrounds, but also have college degrees- many in the field of dance education. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful staff.
We invite you and your child to be a part of something special today!

Dear Dancers and Parents,
Carroll Manor Dance has been my childhood dream. I knew I wanted to create a place where dancers were part of something more than just dance classes.
Since taking over the artistic director role, it has been my goal to provide a learning environment for our students that is welcoming, nurturing and inspiring. What I discovered along the way was how my students inspire me with their innocence, laughter and eagerness to learn. As a teacher, I am honored to play a small, but significant role in their development.
As the director, I feel it is my responsibility to prepare our students with the skills they need to achieve their personal goals while building character, integrity and self confidence. I also feel it is my job to guide our dancers when it comes to choices involving performance. It is important to me that our dancers learn proper technique and vocabulary and that the movement is suitable for their age. Music is what moves us and I feel there are so many songs we can choose that are energetic and free of inappropriate content. Costumes are certainly an exciting part of performance and I love that our dancers wear outfits that are tasteful and flattering yet fun and full of color. A lot of care and thought goes into our decisions.
I am truly blessed to be able to share my love of dance with our students every day. It is rewarding to see how they learn and progress year after year. I appreciate you taking the time to learn more about Carroll Manor Dance Studio. We look forward to welcoming you into our family of dancers.
