Mission Statment

Social Graces consists of a team of friendly, highly trained, instructors who strive to help the average person achieve each of their unique goals through the understanding of how to act in a musical social environment. 

We are in the business of teaching people how to enrich their social lives.  We provide people with tools used in social interaction (such as understanding of partnership dance, music, and social grace), while also providing people with an outlet to practice and fine tune these skills.

Our students will be those who wish to enjoy some of the many benefits that come with the understanding of dance, music, and social interaction — such as relaxation, exercise, and making friends.  We wish to show our competitors that there is much more to a dance studio than dance. 

We achieve this by our awareness to detail.  We have staff highly trained in dance, music as it pertains to dance, and social interaction.  We then create an environment that helps the student unlock their own potential — we teach them how to learn.  In this way we also learn about our unique student and how they need to be taught.  We then teach to their weaknesses.  A great deal of time and energy is saved by this method.  Our students then enjoy the act of learning, while also enjoying the art of knowing.

We will strive to increase social interaction and bridge social gaps by teaching the common person in surrounding communities how to act in a musical social environment.  We will bring partnership dance culture back into our community and Nation as a way of life.
