Le Croix Academy for the Performing Arts We Grow Artists
We Don't Just Teach Dance, We Cultivate Leaders
A Unique Focus At Le Croix Academy
We believe the greatest gift we can give the community is a dancer who not only has a broad dance knowledge and strong technique, but who can apply those talents in a spirit of confidence, compassion, and a commitment to community service.
Dance can be a powerful tool for developing individual leadership skills. The process of learning dance teaches our students to set goals, to work effectively in teams, to creatively solve problems, and a host of other character building attributes.
We recognize that only a small percentage of students will become professional dancers...while all of them will become professional people! At Le Croix Academy, we are committed to helping our students become the most successful people possible.
Students who have completed a fundamentals or entry level program at Le Croix Academy and are accepted for additional training are considered Leadership Ambassadors at the academy.
We charge our leadership ambassadors with the responsibility to guard the positive culture that we've built at the academy. Ambassadors wear the word "leadership" on their uniform and are expected to demonstrate the leadership principles in their behavior on and off the floor and to be an example for newer students.
Those who most successfully demonstrate the principles in their individual practice are given opportunities to further develop their leadership skills through assistant teaching, teacher training, and other leadership development experiences.
Monthly Leadership Focus
Each month we focus on a specific leadership principle and explore how applying that skill enhances our dance practice and our success in social, academic, professional, and family life.
Our focus on Leadership Principles truly set us apart as a facility that doesn't only teach excellent dance technique, we cultivate productive, inspired leaders who feel empowered and prepared to change the world.
