Mini Critic's Choice "Steam Heat"
I started dancing at Innovative Dance when I was 7 years old, and I have loved every minute of it. Molly has helped me grow not only as a dancer but as a person. During my years in Performing Company she encouraged me to do a solo, in which she gave me the technique and confidence I needed to grow as a dancer. Molly is more than just a wonderful teacher; she is a role model and a friend. She shares her passion for dance with every one of her students, and now I share that same passion. With the training Molly has given me I have been able to continue my love for dance on the Oregon State Dance Team. One day I hope to encourage others in dance by becoming a dance teacher.
Innovative Dance has been a wonderful addition to our lives. Our girls have
grown, changed and learned so much here. It has added balance
and filled the girls with confidence, strength and many new
friendships. It's definitely a healthy, safe place to be;
a place we would recommend.
We have been a part of the Innovative Dance family since our girls were three and took their first creative movement class. Now they are 12 and 9 and a part of the Innovative Dance Performing Company. Innovative Dance offers a range of classes. The staff not only teaches dance, but the “art” of dance and many other life lessons. Our daughters have not only learned great dance techniques, and continue to do so, but also a commitment to the studio, their group and to themselves. Other aspects that are instilled in the dancers are: self-confidence, discipline, poise, self respect and the respect for others. Although our daughters do compete at competitions, their incentive is not to receive the highest award nor is it the focus at Innovative Dance. Those awards happen as a consequence of the unique ideology that Molly has, and impresses upon the staff. These are qualities that many of us want and strive for in our children, and are reinforced by the staff at Innovative Dance.
