Dance is not a competition, it’s a passion
We believe in the power of friendship, respect, simplicity, humility, equality and truth.
When we dance, we have to be 100% opened to that moment. Therefore, those three minutes we share with each other is a very important part of our lives. It must be lived with intensity in order to create an inspiring inner world for us and our partner.
We believe that we can all wake up a better person every day. Our potential is unlimited, so with determination and perseverance we will be able to take a flight and achieve our most intimate dreams. Where we are now is just a small part on the life of learning path.
We believe that our technical, social and intrapersonal skills must be developed in constant balance. For that reason, to be great dancers we have to be first great human beings and in this way transmitting through our art our purest truth.
We believe that our mission is to use all our joy and willingness to help inspiring and motivating your action. We will be your constant help in the endless search for the best version of yourself. We will listen to your dreams and your fears and we will always be ready to propel you on a path of true evolution. As we know how important dance is to you and how important you are to dance. We know it goes beyond a simple dance.
We want to symbolize the concept that you really can achieve what you want.
