Elevated Dance Project: Our Mission
The mission of Elevated Dance Project is to provide quality dance education to children and adults
in a family-centered environment, and nurture emerging artists in a way that develops technical
ability, creative aptitude, leadership experience, and promotes discovery of their self worth.
We believe there are infinite possibilities in each of us.
EDP is more than a dance studio. We are a family. Each person who walks through our doors should feel the love of all of our teachers
and staff. We are different. We teach life lessons through the art and discipline of dance. And our vision is to change the world. As
each student passes through our doors on a weekly basis, our goal is to help strengthen their character, and send them home as
better versions of themselves. As they continue to find their strengths, and work on their weaknesses, they become more and more
prepared to face the challenges that will continually present themselves at every stage of their lives, and they will find their courage,
their light, and love for themselves and all those around them. They will learn to treat themselves and others with kindness, and that
kindness is needed more than ever in this world!
Our class sizes at EDP are small, but mighty! Small class sizes enable teachers to focus on each individual, so that they will feel loved,
welcomed, and supported. We don't want to be the biggest, just the best. Yes, your child will learn to plie, cross ball change, shuffle
hop step, step kick across the floor, pirouette and fouette, and get really good at it. But through the dance steps they will find
themselves, and just how truly awesome they are!
At EDP, it's not about being better than someone else, it's about being the best version of ourselves every day. It's not about us versus
them, it's about us AND them. Doing something we ALL love. Working hard, building confidence, strength, stamina, learning
responsibility, compassion, kindness, and encouraging everyone around us to do the same. And right now we need more us AND
them. It has always been about that. That's why we are different. That's why we are special. How we treat each other matters. If we lost
our ability to dance tomorrow, I hope we could say "I learned that I am more than just my ability to dance - I am a good human being. I
make a difference whether I dance or not." But since we have been blessed with the gift of dance, and the MANY MANY different
lessons and blessings that come with it, our ability to be good people and to do good to others magnifies. Dancers are special. We feel
emotions deeply. And we have a responsibility to use those emotions wisely, and for good! No jealousy, no spite, no pride, no malice,
no envy. In the end, all that will matter is that we loved each other the best we could, and taught others what we learned along the way.
We will continue to teach principles that will open understanding and compassion for one another, and help build strong, adaptable,
courageous, determined, enthusiastic, fair-minded, generous, independent, optimistic, self-confident, self-disciplined, hard-working
young men and women, with open hearts and minds, who can change with world!!
