We chose the acronym FYI because the typical meaning of "For Your Information" is appropriate - we are giving our dancers information. However, if you look more closely, you will see that our name is "For Your Inspiration".
This name was chosen because we believe in inspiring every dancer who has a passion for the art of dance. No matter the age, experience or expertise, we believe every dancer is special and amazing!
For Your Inspiration Dance Company was founded with a simple idea: To become great at anything you must be dedicated, work hard work and persevere; however, when all is said and done you should be able to look back and say: Dance is FUN!
We believe in inspiring every dancer who has a passion for the art of dance. No matter the age, experience or expertise, we believe every dancer is special and amazing!
FYI Dance Co. is a place where dancers can come and grow in a positive and nurturing environment. We want every dancer to reach their full potential, both physically and emotionally.
We believe that dance is a form of art, something to be respected and appreciated. By teaching our dancers this basic fundamental, we hope to teach them how to share the passion of dance with the world.
We also understand that dance is a family affair. Our lobbies are designed to let family members relax while waiting with sofas, benches, tables and free Wi-Fi.
Students are initially placed according to their age. They are then evaluated by instructors during the first class in each discipline. We believe students should be pushed to become better and stronger, but not at the expense of their technique and the social aspect that comes with a team sport. We know that "fitting in" is hard, and we want each of our dancers in the best possible environment to thrive.
All of our dance rooms are equipped with professionally designed sprung floors (the wood is elevated off the concrete by shock absorbing pads) and topped with either maple hardwood or vinyl dance flooring. This combination helps to prevent stress on joints, injuries and muscle fatigue.
Stop by the front desk to view a small sample cut-away portion of our flooring.
Our office staff is made up of people who care about our dancers and their families. You will be treated with respect and a smile every time you come in, call or email.
Our teachers have many years of experience both in dancing and teaching. We attend dance conventions and workshops throughout the year to help us keep up with both the best teaching techniques and freshest dance styles.
All of our staff is interested in our dancers and families as a whole.
We believe that school is important.
We encourage all of our students to take academics seriously. It is easy to get caught up in our art, and we do not want any of our students to miss other opportunities that only an education can give them.
We understand that many students come straight from school and finding time for homework can be a challenge. We provide a designated study room off of our front lobby, away from the distraction of the class rooms and noise.
We also provide the opportunity for our dancers to attend several workshops and conventions throughout the year.
