The Consuming Fire School of Dance & Gymnastics Mission

The mission for the Consuming Fire School of Dance is to provide the highest quality of dance by offering students a solid foundation in correct technique.
  To encourage the emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual growth of each individual; and to stretch and strengthen the body while teaching gracefulness and coordination for dance and performance.
  Combination classes are offered for younger students at the Consuming Fire School of Dance, in order to provide students with a rounded understanding of all forms of dance.
 The ballet and tap syllabus trains students in a sequence of grades, carefully measured as to degree of difficulty and physical development. The ballet syllabus provides a system of accredited examinations to test the student's proficiency within those grades. Once students have passed their exam, they are promoted to the next level.
