MBLA strives to foster creativity, cultural appreciation, self confidence and a healthy and active lifestyle in students of all levels and ages by providing a dance education program. We appreciate each student’s unique capabilities and we endeavor to give each individual the education and attention they deserve through our caring staff and by keeping our class sizes small. The students are introduced to ballet, African Dance and Jazz techniques. The dance program allows students to explore the elements of dance: body, shape, space, and effort (the expressive qualities of movement). As the elements work together to create original dances, students develop self awareness, social skills and learning strategies.
