Our Goal....
It is the goal of the Fergus Falls School of Dance to teach its students much more than "steps". We hope to open them to a wholly different way to look at the world. The physical fitness that comes from dance training is actually a side benefit, not the goal. Studying dance as an "art form" is very different from taking dance as a sport where learning "routines" and competition are the main emphasis. Dance as an art form is concerned with the bigger picture of teaching a sense of the aesthetic, the appreciation of beauty and value.

It stimulates creative energy and is a positive outlet for self-expression. In the process of learning the technical skills necessary to communicate through movement, our students acquire good posture, body awareness, flexibility and strength.

They develop self-discipline, confidence, creative problem solving skills, the ability to take corrections, and to think as an individual within a group.

They learn to compete with themselves, to always strive to improve and to do their best.

They learn the value of the unique individual voice of each person.
