Mission Statement

Luminary Dance Project/ Intensive Programs are designed to provide dancers with a comprehensive artistic education while honing ones’ technique. Our belief is that providing a safe environment where students can experiment and push the boundaries of their dancing leads to incredible growth and great self-discovery.  We strive to instill lessons that can be 

used life long whether pursuing a career in dance or not. The goal is to train dancers that are disciplined, dedicated, and dance with a generosity of spirit. 

Pre - Professional
