We hope you’ve heard the news! This year, we are celebrating our 40th year, new programs and a new name – The Dance Foundation. Please browse our website to see our logo and learn more about expanded program offerings, including The Dance Artist Program for 3rd-12th grade students and Moving Together classes for Infants/Toddlers and Adults. We are very excited for the new season, which is about to begin!
Forty years ago, dancer Jennie Webb Robertson, along with actor Virginia Samford Donovan and musician Mary Conyers Cooper, implemented a new approach to teaching dance to very young children and those with special needs in the greater Birmingham area. Our name may be new, but our mission remains the same - to teach the art of dance to all, cultivating creativity and confidence.
Now, under the leadership of new artistic director, Heidi Stoeckley, our professional teaching artists continue to ignite the creative spirit and talent of all children. We have nearly 30 dance artists and musicians that fulfill our founding mission daily, dancing with Birmingham children through various community partnerships and in our studios in downtown Homewood. Our students learn the art of dance and the art of life. Stoeckley said “We encourage our students to explore their imaginations, to become self-aware, to engage in creative problem solving and to enjoy learning.”
