Five. Six. Seven. Eight!
Welcome to the National award winning Denise Wall's Dance Energy Studio, offering classes in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical, Hip Hop and Flamenco. Since opening in 1993, Denise Wall's Dance Energy has turned out students that have gone on to careers with American Ballet Theatre, Kirov, Broadway, along with various professions with performance groups on cruise ships, hit T.V. shows, and multiple professional theatre groups, and more. Students with little previous dance training soared to unthinkable heights, while more experienced students had their skills nurtured and pushed to a boundless limit. Denise Wall's Dance Energy offers a program which covers a full range of techniques necessary for each of the dance arts. The studio's faculty consists of professional teachers who are fully qualified to provide training that will prepare students who have the desire to enter a career in the performing arts as well as those who want to take dance just for the fun of it in our recreational program.
Through a curriculum that is based on a foundation of body awareness and placement, injury prevention and anatomically driven lessons, our studio is able to train every level of dancer that is willing to learn. All of our faculty members are highly trained on these important methods which begins with the early elementary classes and carries through to the pre-professional company classes. The training and instruction provided within these studio walls is world renowned. Seasonal master classes are provided to expand the curriculum and provide the students an opportunity to learn new styles from choreographers and professionals whose talents are highly sought after. We not only train our students in the performing arts, we impart on them the ability to teach others these same methods. Opportunities are available to our students to assist in all levels and subjects of dance, gaining the vocabulary and skills necessary to mold young, new dancers from the next generation.
Class Placement & Schedules
Class Placement: All students are placed according to their physical facility, talent, and ability to apply and retain all technical corrections. Class placement will be carefully reviewed and evaluated by the teachers and director. We DO NOT post our class schedule on the website!
New Students will receive a “tentative schedule” sheet that must be given to the teacher before class begins, and at the end of class the teacher will return the sheet to the student with the teacher’s decision on the most appropriate class for the student. This schedule must be presented in every class the student is evaluated in. The student may be asked to return to a different class for evaluation at no charge. After the evaluation is completed, this sheet must be filled out and returned to the main office to complete registration.
Returning D.W.D.E students will receive their class schedule upon registering for classes.
Walk In Classes: Students who wish to take a walk in class should contact the main office during regular office hours for class information.
Congratulations to our co-owner Denise Wall, for her cover story in the July 2012 issue of Dance Teacher magazine and for being announced the recipient of the 2012 Dance Teacher Lifetime Achievement Award!
