Building strong and healthy individuals.

Apr 15, 2021

Draper Center for Dance Education offers a preeminent training experience. My daughter came to the studio at age 12 with a goal of focusing on classical ballet. She was immediately made to feel included, which speaks to the welcoming nature of the studio. Within the last three years, she has grown tremendously in her technique and abilities – a testament to hard work and the attention to detail that the teachers provide every day! In addition to building solid ballet technique, Draper Center truly understands the culture of the dance world and brings that understanding to every aspect of their curriculum and performance opportunities.  Students who express a commitment to dance find themselves learning about professional development, nutrition, mental and physical health awareness, stage production, choreography, and the importance of sharing their artform. Thus, while their central goal is to build strong dancers, Draper Center is also mindful of building strong and healthy individuals. We are grateful for the dedicated teachers and staff who make Draper Center a wonderful place!
