Welcome to Best Foot Forward Dance!


At Best Foot Forward we strive to serve the whole student, body and mind, by implementing a variety of educational theories into our teaching method. We strongly believe that a multi-age and inclusive environment is key to learning, in which students excel by following example and solidify their learning by assisting with less experienced students. Our philosophy of dance education is one that truly values the process of learning, rather than focusing on the end result.
