Pat  Harris  Studio Culture Teaches

Family:

Designed for us all to build a community together—young people, older people and our families.

Friendship: 

Your dance family is probably the tightest bond a person can have, besides their own family. Your dance family encourages you, supports you, makes you look good, and never leaves you hanging when you need a partner for the next combination.

Kindness:

Dancers perform in hospitals and assisted-living centers.

Community:

Performing at local city events, nursing homes, assisted living, annual Boise holiday parade.

Discipline: 

Dancers achieve success in the classroom through hard work and practice. This work ethic transfers over into academic's and life experience.

Respect: 

Dancers are expected to work with other members of the class, and learn to accept teacher corrections and accepting improvement.

Creativity and Discovery: 

Dancers are taught a dance curriculum but are often asked to express what they feel during a choreographed piece. Sometimes the student’s movement is so unique and inspiring that the teacher adds the movement to the piece.

Enhanced Concentration: 

Dancers perform small combinations in class. Each choreographed section must be picked up quickly in order to move on to the next 8 counts. Once mastered, students are challenged to perform these combinations facing different sides of the room, in groups as well as performing combos in geometric shapes.

Learned Listening Skills: Dancers must listen to the teacher to succeed in class. Examples include barre work directions, floor stretches, across the floor progressions, and class combinations.

Confidence: Dancers increase their self-esteem each time they master a step in class. Students continue to build esteem by performing at local performances and recitals. Hence, students are confident giving school reports and interviewing for jobs and colleges.

Fitness/Sports: 

Dancers develop motor skills, coordination, and balance in the classroom. These skills are transferred into all forms of sports and fitness.
