Directors’ Letter



Dear DanceArts Families,

Welcome to our studio!

If you have been with DAG for many years or you are researching the correct dance school for you, let me give you some insight to our organization. We have a wonderful, dedicated faculty that works under the artistic leadership of my husband and I. We hold a strong core value that each student has his or her own potential and path that needs to be tapped and awakened.

Our school curriculum is designed to keep a consistent training method and help the student advance successfully. Starting at our Preparatory Level, we provide an end of year evaluation as well as a mid-year check in that lets the directors observe all classes and fill out a report of training.

This year, I will be teaching Monday & Tuesday at DAG as well as continuing my relationship with Charlotte Ballet Academy, as their Associate Director. I danced professionally with Charlotte Ballet (formely knowned as North Carolina Dance Theater) and met Hernan there over 17 years ago. Charlotte Ballet has been an amazing professional development for me and this knowledge enhances both DanceArts and Charlotte Ballet Academy.

We welcome NEW to our DAG crew:

Alena Blair teaches PreBallet  & Preparatory Jazz

Martin Justo teaches Ballet Elementary, Boys Ballet & Adult Ballet

These two teachers will join our wonderful set of faculty. Get to them more here 

Thank you again for choosing DanceArts for your child’s dance education.

Anita & Hernan
