Dance, the Ultimate Inclusivity


In these times of heightened inclusivity awareness, the art of dance is the ultimate inclusivity!

Why Dance?

Dance programs are based in a type of creativity, and teamwork, that embraces and celebrates the unique style of each person. Dance attracts kids and adults from all backgrounds, religions, nationalities, beliefs, orientations, ages etc. where they are motivated, valued, integrated, and praised for their uniqueness and individualism.




Our Beautiful Shreya

We are so excited to celebrate our competitive graduating seniors who have persevered through all the challenges and demands of their high school’s strenuous scholastic and demanding requirements, while successfully balancing the commitments of the Competitive FOCUS Dance Program. Please enjoy this three-part series where we highlight our three graduating Company Seniors to share a glimpse into the amazing people they are and will continue to be as they pursue this next amazing chapter in their lives.

Shreya Saraswat. Shreya started dancing at age 14 & joined us at FOCUS at age 14 🥺

Favorite Style of Dance: Hip Hop

Favorite FOCUS Memory:
The Spirit Rallies because “it was fun dressing up for them & bonding as a team” 😻

“Although short & unconventional due to Covid, my time at FOCUS has been amazing! I met so many great people & lifelong friends. I’ve learned not only how to dance, but how to be a good person & I will be using all that I have learned from my teachers moving forward.” — @shreyasaraswatt

Shreya will be attending UCR & majoring in Neuroscience 🤩

Our beautiful Shreya is intelligent, considerate, caring, & compassionate — her smile can light up a room & she brings so much joy to those around her. We are so proud of her & will miss her very much. WE LOVE YOU SHREYA 💕
