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.
