Our instructors are highly educated and well trained in their specific area, and are extremely qualified.  Our facility is equipped with two studios in a 2,500 square foot facility, each studio containing state of the art sound and electronic systems.  Our studios have a one way glass window for parents to observe class, but will keep the children focused on class.  
    
    Expressions Academy of Dance will also retain a Performance Ensemble;  Visions, and two apprentice companies.  These will serve Placer County as youth programs, with year long community projects, and reflective learning.  The companies will do fundraisers for not only their own company but for other organizations involved in helping the youth of Placer County.  Doing shows in many venues, such as fairgrounds, elementary schools, senior homes and other functions, Visions Performance Ensemble will spread the word about EAD, and will also exhibit the mission of the company; putting passion into each step in every direction.
 
 

Core Values-  At EAD will strongly believe that each person should feel accepted, safe and special.  It is our goal to treat each dancer, parent, grandparent, brother and sister with respect and understanding.  We believe that professionalism is of extreme importance, however we want our environment to be filled with love and support.  Teaching children to dance and to love themselves are our two main goals at EAD.  Watching a child learn the art of dance, build self confidence, and find their self worth is the most amazing gift.
