From Irish dance to salsa dance, Broadway to ballet,
we truly offer something for everyone. Here’s some of what we love to do!
Studio founder Sarah Ingley is fully certified, Primary-Level 7, plus Partnering, in the elite American Ballet Theatre® National Training Curriculum, centered at ABT’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School in Manhattan. Select students perform classical repertory and variations from world-famous ballets. We bring in guest artists, including professionals from the likes of Suzanne Farrell Ballet, Orlando Ballet, Richmond Ballet, and Miami City Ballet. We emphasize focus, progress, responsibility, and artistry, not body type or ‘talent’. We strive to approach all youth with the same graciousness and dignity as we hold for the art of Western classical dance.
modern + contemporary
Staff teach academic modern dance rooted in Limon, Graham, Horton, and/or Duncan techniques. Our choreographers create cutting-edge contemporary works to challenge and inspire dancers and audiences alike!
Our busy Irish Dance program includes School Steps, Ceilis, Figure Dances, and traditional-through-contemporary Set Dances. Students can compete in feisianna as well as perform show-style routines year-round. Our owner Sarah Ingley toured across the U.S., lead-dancing with Nashville’s “Christmas With The Celts,” as shown on PBS. She is a three-time UF guest lecturer for “Riverdance” (which her students opened for) and has taught the children’s dance class at Mississippi Celtic Fest. Our newest teacher, Ms. Mallory, trained under Ms. Sarah and guest-performed in various cities with major international Irish stars Cherish the Ladies, Lunasa, Donny Golden, and Cara Butler.
