OUR VISION

OUR VISION

The Hive Dance Company believes that artistic expression in dance is a marriage of dance techniques and the authenticity of the dancer’s Self. The decisions we make as a studio are held against our 3 core ideals:

 

CHARACTER

Our teaching philosophy is based on the fundamental premise that character building is first and foremost. Character building in sports can only happen when there is a conscious decision by the organization and the people supporting it to make that happen. Our students are expected to act with integrity and to be good stewards for themselves and for their team. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning journey, and we show them the importance of hard work, perseverance and humility. While there are no shortcuts to excellence in dance technique, the journey is just as important.

 

COMMUNITY

We aspire to be an active, inclusive, engaged, reflective, authentic and intentional studio that can connect to the overall community. Our vision is to build a dance program that brings the dancers, their families and our teachers together as collaborators to construct a family-friendly environment that can enrich and support the child’s journey and instil a lifelong appreciation for dance.

 

CONFIDENCE

We intend to preserve each student’s unique voice and gifts. We seek to be an inclusive and nurturing environment that is sensitive to the needs of each dancer. When students are related to emotionally, guided socially, challenged cognitively, and strengthened physically, they gain the confidence to grow into themselves both as dancers and as powerful individuals. Through that proper dance technique and confidence comes artistry.

 

Let's have some serious fun!
