The Springfield School of Dance would like to extend a sincere thanks for the opportunity to have a hand in your child's development, because the dance training that the children receive gives them, not only grace and a strong body, but much more. In the young years of a child’s development, this training teaches them the importance of activating the mind and body as one; the ability to work artistically with others, and the opportunity to express creativity.
