    Dance training can’t be separate from life training. Everything that comes into our lives is training. The qualities we admire in great dancing are the same qualities we admire in human beings: honesty, courage, fearlessness, generosity, wisdom, depth, compassion, and humanity.

    Carolina Dance Productions will provide a solid technical foundation in a nurturing environment for a variety of dance styles to all ages and levels.

    Research now supports that 4 or more years of arts training improves neuropathways which enhance thought processing and learning. There are direct correlations that link arts training to superior academic skills in math and reading as well as enhanced socialization skills such as communication and creative problem-solving.

    Boys and girls who dance experience improved all-around physical health and coordination. It improves their abilities in sports and creates healthy lifestyle habits which will positively impact their overall adult health. This can be achieved with the clear vision of Carolina Dance Productions Artistic Director Lori Dew and the dedication of her professional staff.
