The Syracuse School of Dance, under the direction of Mary Pat Speno, offers quality training in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz and Modern, Tap, Hip Hop, and Musical Theatre to children, teens and adults of all ages and skill levels.
The philosophy at SSD is that one can train a dancer, mind and body...that people thrive in positive and nurturing environments.
The teachers are experienced professionals with the unique ability of bringing out creative self-awareness in their students through personal attention in a relaxing and non-competitive atmosphere.
Students at the school start with Creative Movement classes and progress to concentrated training in other dance forms. Adult classes offer an appreciation of dance and an opportunity to maintain a flexible, strong and expressive body.
Classes are diversified, challenging and designed to develop coordination, muscular strength, correct posture and flexibility in conjunction with technical skills and a sensitive awareness for creative bodily expression.
