The Dancenter offers a wide range of instruction from beginning levels to prepare for professional performing. The primary objective of each class is to instill a love for dance and the technique for creative performance appropriate to the level of training.
A growing interest for advanced students has been in the area of teaching. Tutorial programs for teachers of dance are offered by invitation. Prospective teachers receive instruction from the Dancenter faculty while serving as class demonstrators or teaching assistants.
A reason for dance training is the development of poise and experience by performing before the public. Our students gain self-confidence that helps them in competitive situations and in future career choices.
The Dancenter is home to “The Danscompany” of Gainesville, Inc., a non-profit performing group of inspired dancers. This company presents two major concerts each year featuring ballet, jazz, modern and tap performances. It also performs for a variety of community service and educational events.
The Danscompany has garnered widespread public support in Gainesville for its exciting presentations of dance. Children, teens, and adults who exhibit superior skills and a willingness to work are afforded the opportunity to take part in the company through an adjudicated audition in the spring of each year.
