What Do Setting Goals Do for Us?


Sports and dance are great examples of goal setting and the results from them are not only that they help one achieve success in physical activities but also help to give us the mental skills that can then be applied throughout one’s lifetime in work, family, friendships, and love.


“Brand New” Winning 1st Overall at KAR!


A little back story:
Due to the pandemic, our 19th Season truly meant starting fresh. Although essentially creating a new program required a lot of work, it also allowed us to create and instill new traditions. Our ALL-Company ALL-Styles Line Dance is a result of this.
The idea actually came from Miss Maria and Mr. Chris at our Company Gala Party last year. We presented the dance to our FOCUS families and they embraced the new. Most importantly, they trusted us.
We spent countless hours preparing the concept and choreography (this dance is a Monie-Shannon-Maria-Chris collab) and even MORE hours rehearsing with the kiddos in the studio. All 52 Company and Company PRO Dancers dance in this piece. Every FOCUS family is involved and invested.
KAR was the first time ANY of us saw the dance in its entirety. FOCUS parents saw the result of their trust in us, and we (choreographers) saw the result of our trust in our dancers. Our dancers SHINED. There was so much cheering. Tears were shed. It was a very special day – only made even more special when we took 1st Overall for Super Line Groups at KAR.

We’ll post the performance video soon!

FOCUS Dance Center is an Ongoing Program


FOCUS Dancers Show Off
Their Skills to Level Up!

Our dancers work hard and play hard! FOCUS dancers demonstrated their skills and determination during this week's Assessment. We couldn't be prouder of their hard work and results. They deserve a standing ovation. Congratulations to ALL!

FOCUS Dance Center's Merit/Reward-based training classes provide ongoing weekly growth encouragement training, for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced dancer, in all styles of dance, ages, 2.5 to 102. Classes are designed for fitness, dance technique/performance, team building, confidence, posture, and presence, positive social skills, refined listening skills, mental and physical stamina, discipline, a greater sense of responsibility, goal setting, and achieving, as well as new friendships. The skills gained in each class help to enhance all areas of one’s life.

The Merit/Reward-based training classes are on-going with no set beginning or ending dates to the training program to give the student the ability to continue challenging themselves to more advanced levels of ability when they are ready.

Dancers challenge themselves to advancement through three yearly informal/in-house showcase/progress presentations where dancers advance through three rankings (Example: 1A, 1B, and 1C etc.) within each training level as well as the ability to graduate to more advanced levels when ready. Carefully planned curriculum and training are given to successfully master the skills of each ranking and put the control in the hands of the student as to how quickly they grow and advance.
