"I've grown in so many ways, not only as a dancer but as human being. There's always somebody that cares about how you feel not only in the technical aspect but in the personal, too."
-Vale González, Commercial Track '15

"I love how enriching the academic classes are and the infinite variety of teachers we get to learn from."
-Akane Koizumi, Ballet/Contemporary Track '16

"Being surrounded by such talented classmates, professional dancers and teachers with an outstanding career and proficiency level plus the multiple performance opportunities the program offers, has done a lot more than only pushing me forward, it has been an eyeopener for me and has broadened immensely my scope, perspective and expectations towards dance and my personal path within the dance world. In addition, being so close to people from so many different origins and backgrounds makes that perspective even wider. "
-Paulina Espinosa, Ballet/Contemporary Track '14

"It was a perfect substitute instead of going to grad school, the experience has been amazing and my technique and artistry have improved so much. It's a great opportunity to build good connections."
-Stacie Cannon, Ballet/Contemporary Track '14

"I feel that I'm the right place to become a complete dancer."
-Alex Navarro, Commercial Track '16
