It is well known that children involved in dance and the arts tend to perform better in general. At Centre Pointe, we encourage the creativity of our dancers and the importance of being committed and focused on dance. Here, dancers are able to find mentors within their teachers that support them and allow them to be creative and expressive by creating a positive learning environment. In addition to gaining the support of their teachers, dancers must also learn to understand the idea of constructive criticism so that they are able to take in feedback negative or positive without feeling targeted.

Our History

Centre Pointe Performing Arts, formerly known as Dancemoves Studio of Dance was founded in 1983 by Susan R.
