More Than Dance and Music

Participation at the Dance and Music Centre goes far beyond just mastering steps, learning notes, and winning awards. It encompasses much more, such as building self-esteem, encouraging teamwork, developing self-discipline, musicality, self-expression, and an appreciation of the arts. Our goal is to help all of our students reach their greatest potential with the confidence to reach for the stars in whatever career they may choose.

But learning dance and music is only part of the experience at D’Valda & Sirico.
