THIS IS OUR STORY

Ann Parsley School of Dance was founded in 1976 by Ann Parsley. It is a school dedicated to providing quality dance instruction in a non-competitive environment. High technical standards are maintained and a joy of movement and sense of artistry are instilled through encouragement and positive reinforcement. The goal of the studio is to give students a solid dance foundation through the focus of technique and discipline by allowing them to embrace the spirit and soul of dance as an art form. Ann Parsley School of Dance offers a family oriented atmosphere where movement, music and costumes are tastefully chosen and always age-appropriate. Dance, in a disciplined, non-competitive environment gives children, as well as adults, the opportunity to express themselves freely through music and movement. It enhances the ability to pursue individual goals and to work together as a group while also building skills such as coordination, musicality, self-discipline, creativity, arts appreciation and self-esteem.


Whether a student chooses to dance professionally or moves on to other interests, the skills they learn at the studio will benefit them throughout life. The studio faculty are all adult, highly qualified and professionally trained teachers. Many of our instructors train teachers throughout the area and prepare them for Cecchetti Teacher Examinations. Students ages 8-25 may also audition for the Macomb Ballet Company, an organization that is affiliated with the studio. The Macomb Ballet Company is a non-profit organization, which provides performing experience for talented dancers through the creation of a quality, community-based, classical ballet company while reaching, educating, and enriching the audiences of Macomb County through special performances and formal concerts. Many students from the studio and company go on to dance professionally or continue their studies at the University level.
