Dance Barre Elite Fundraiser at Leo's Komedy Korner! - Nov 29th

Posted November 5, 2014 @ 12:47PM

Please click to enlarge

DanceBarre Elite Company is a community group of dancers (6 – 18 years of age) and their families, whose interest is the promotion of cultural, wholesome and well-supervised activities for young people. More specifically, this program is dedicated to the task of developing good citizens by providing a nourishing teaching environment through the art of dance. These young dancers will learn the spirit of competition, team unity and an appreciation for the arts. This Organization operates under strong leadership, which creates a positive atmosphere where dancers take class, rehearse, perform and compete in the Art of Dance.

The members of DanceBarre Elite Company give to their Arts community, a pledge of conformity to the highest standards of personal conduct, team development, and good sportsmanship. In the final analysis, what becomes of the dancer is a primary objective of our group. “Is the dancer a better person as a result of their experience in the program? Has the dancer learned lessons and acquired good habits and attitudes which will make them more effective in their future years as a parent and/or finer citizen?” The art of dance and participation in this Elite Company involves a tremendous amount of sacrifice, commitment and dedication from both the dancer and their family. Our aim at DanceBarre is to make our program an exceptional learning, growing and enjoyable experience for all.

The objective of DanceBarre shall be to implant firmly in their membership, the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, determination, courage and respect for authority, through the art of Dance, so that they may become well adjusted, stronger and happier children and will grow to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens.
