History

conveniently located in a single suite.  Dance Spectrum was recognized by Senator Barbara Boxer

and performance opportunities in the Pass Area.  In the fall of 2013, Dance Spectrum was voted
"Best Dance Studio for Kids" in the the Inland Empire by voters on the I.E. Hotlist.

Philosophy

We believe that dance is a special art form which can transport, inform, and inspire.  At Dance
Spectrum, students learn more than just steps.  Our instructors strive to bring out the best in
each student.  Respect, dedication, and increased confidence are just a few of the traits
developed in each dancer--valuable qualities for life outside of the studio and beyond.  It is also
our hope that students leave Dance Spectrum with a genuine love and appreciation of dance as
well as the other arts.

Classes

Students thoroughly enjoy classes while still learning essential concepts & principles crucial to each
dance form.  A variety of classes are offered for students ages 2 1/2 through Adult in varying  
levels. Mommy & Me, Pre-Ballet & combination classes introduce the young student to the dance
studio elements, student etiquette, and basic fundamentals while utilizing whimsical props to
helpstimulate interest and illustrate basic concepts.  Beginning through Advanced Level Classes
furtherdevelop the dancer offering level appropriate technical challenges and an emphasis on
developingself-confidence, performance skills, a genuine love for movement and the art of
dance.
