The faculty at Gotta Dance is committed to providing each of our dancers the best dance education possible. Our Performance Team is a group that was formed in order to give our most serious dancers an opportunity to challenge themselves as well as to perform throughout the year. We are proud and excited to offer our Team a variety of workshops with some very talented dance educators so they can continue to challenge themselves as dancers and as artists.
