Welcome to the Syracuse School of Dance
Training healthy dancers.....mind and body
The Syracuse School of Dance (SSD), under the direction of MaryPat Speno, offers quality training in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, hip-hop & musical theater to children, teens & adults of all ages & skill levels. The philosophy at SSD is that one can train a dancer, mind & body and that people thrive in a positive & nurturing environment.
The teachers are experienced professionals possessing the unique ability of bringing out creative self-awareness in their students through personal attention in a relaxing, non-competitive atmosphere. Students at the school start with a Creative Movement class & progress to concentrated training in the other dance forms. Adult classes offer an appreciation of dance & an opportunity to maintain a flexible, strong & expressive body. Classes are diversified, challenging & designed to develop coordination, muscular strength, correct posture & flexibility in conjunction with technical skills & a senstive awareness for creative bodily expression.
