“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself”
– Mikhail Baryshnikov

Dance is an essential skill in any performer’s repertoire. Whether you are developing your skills as an experienced dancer or you’re looking practice the basics, Popovsky Performing Arts Studio offers you the opportunity to develop your dance technique and express yourself through movement.
