    The things i've learned at PPAC are unforgettable. The staff were great and the environment was warming . The only thing to do next is to continue to expand.

  • Imani Williams-Sparks

    As a dancer at PPAC, I gained so much confidence that I didn't have before I started dancing at Price. Price was my first dance studio and the place where I first started training to be a professional dancer. It has shown me exactly who I can be and what I am capable of. It has also taught me discipline and how to deal with different kinds of people. Also, joining the company and tap company has shown me that I can do anything I put my mind to. Joining has prepared me for being part of the dance company in college, where I hold the position as President as well as Dance Instructor. My experience at Price Performing Arts Center was ultimately the best 8 years of my dance career and during that time I gained an amazing family in the process.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have produced several productions through my studio Price Performing Arts Center, but I am recently proud of our original holiday production, "Prima's Winter Wonderland", that we premiered for our inaugural performance in December, 2016.  It was a wonderful production presented through theater, music and dance arts!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advise a student who is looking to hire a dance instructor to look for a program that offers the genre of dance you aspire to learn, with at least 5 years experience and thoroughly research their services/programs and compare with at least 3-5 other programs before making a final decision.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about and decide exactly what they desire to learn and what are their short term artistic goals.  They should also decide if they are serious about their commitment to training, and whether or not they are going to be able to be dedicated and consistent to their classes and curriculum of study.
