Dance Matters is devoted to continuously creating new work that will enable talented and committed young dancers of all ages to grow technically and artistically. The company hopes to pioneer opportunities for young dancers by offering a professional platform where they are exposed to challenging and inspiring work by highly qualified industry professionals from different backgrounds along with their training. Creating a safe space for young dancers to delve deeper into their unique artistic expression is at the core of our mission.

We understand the importance of technique and offer a wide array of top notch dance training classes in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz and Contemporary to our students. These classes and our choreographic work are the two main aspects of our program.

A dancer comes to live and grows every time he or she steps on stage. Therefore, we strive to offer several performance opportunities throughout the year for our dancers.

We know the work we do goes beyond the classroom and it allows us to generate more creativity, confidence, individuality and inspiration in our younger generations. We hope they then will be able to spread them into the rest of their communities.
