Cleveland Partner Ballet Studios: En Pointe Danse and Cuyahoga Falls Dance Center
Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full international professional cast are local Cleveland children.
En Pointe Danse’s goal is to provide students with a strong technical foundation in ballet, and other dance forms, while encouraging a joy for dancing that they will take with them wherever they go. Students at En Pointe Danse should be able to apply the lessons learned in dance, such as discipline, perseverance, creative thinking and a developed sense of physical well-being, to the rest of their lives. The studio also promotes the growth of its students’ self-confidence, self-expression, and their ability to thrive in a performance setting.
Cuyahoga Falls Dance Center strives to foster self-confidence, physical fitness, and artistic expression within its students. Students work hard, accept corrections gracefully, feel beautiful, and challenge themselves to move to music. The studio witnesses its students’ personal growth as they learn to interact with one another with courtesy and respect. Students are encouraged to give back to the community that has supported their endeavors and to become role models of accomplishments and integrity. Above all, the studio is a joyful place where its students smile, laugh, have fun and encourage one another.
