SD Atwater is a non-competitive, recreational dance studio that focuses not only on dance skills, but on creative movement, original choreography, dance as art and gently encouraging your child’s self esteem with age appropriate expectations and the joy of dance. Our program is based upon multiple-class lessons which we believe offers the best opportunity for children to learn, improve upon and combine new skills and routines, develop their dancing abilities and improve their mind, body and soul connection.
