In Dance Beyond Dance, we are celebrating our alumni who took their creativity and the skills acquired through their dance education and applied them in new creative adventurers. At The Place, we believe that dance is for life and that dancing teaches life skills that set people up for life-long learning, curiousity, resourcefullness and entrepeneurship. See what paths our alumni have taken!
