mission

dansphere is an organization that provides holistic dance education to movement based artists

 

unlike the majority of conventional dance education, dansphere places equal emphasis on all aspects of life, allowing dance artists to reach their full potential while reducing the risk of burnout.

 

born from a love of dance movement, artistic expression, and the human experience, dansphere values the integration of: 

  • dance education

  • physical health

  • mental wellbeing

  • emotional fortitude

  • financial literacy

  • spiritual connectivity

 

our belief is that a life of harmony, longevity, and fulfillment will emerge when all aspects of a dancer are nurtured.

at dansphere, we are human first - opening the doors to a more well rounded understanding of what it truly means to be a dance artist!
