Youth Dance Company

EXHALE DANCE COMPANY:

Our Mission: 
The Exhale Dance Company’s mission is to share the joy of dance with the community.

Our Vision: 
The Exhale Dance Company is a youth intensive program for dancers ranging in ages 6-18. Through a disciplined study of the art and technique of dance students will gain the knowledge and strength to grow into memorable performers.  The EDC will perform at non-competitive community events, invite master teachers to share their knowledge, and produce their own shows throughout the season.

Our vision is to create technical, passionate dancers who give back to their community through their art. Jen hopes to inspire her students to strive to be their ultimate best on-and-off the dance floor.  Our final product is not our performances, but rather, the students that leave our company ready to take-on the world with passion, dedication and kindness.

Values:
The Exhale Dance Company teaches more than dance steps.  We want our students to have a firm understanding of movement, dance and life.  Life skills are taught in our classrooms such as: teamwork, inclusiveness, leadership, “I can” confidence, a strong work ethic, accountability, and the importance of community involvement.
We train each-and-every student as if they are going to be a professional dancer.  After all, they will become a ‘professional’ in some form when they enter adulthood.

What does it mean to be in the EDC?
EDC members decide to make dance their biggest after school commitment.  They attend at least two dance classes per week.  EDC members donate their time to perform in community events, raise money for charitable causes and mentor younger dance students.   

Discounts:
Tuition Discount:  All EDC members will receive 10% off their tuition.
Costume Fee Discount: EDC members will only pay $50 per costume, instead of $65.
(Here at Exhale our goal is to keep costs as low as possible.  Families will only receive ONE costume fee a year.  Dancers will only wear these costumes or their team gear for shows.  We pride ourselves on not creating hidden fees for our families!)

Team Gear:  Students would also be asked to purchase team gear for performances.  (This year we will perform in Community Day and at the Farmers’ Market!!!)

Team T-Shirt: $18
Straight black, crop leggings:  Purchase through Mrs. Jen or at any retailer.
