FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We invite the student to try a free lesson.  This gives them an opportunity to visit the school and find a class that would suit them the best. Open classes are available for walk in for all adult students on a weekly basis.  To arrange a complimentary lesson call us at 919-303-1105.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Theatre programs that offer performing opportunities if they have that desire.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

The director, Debra Sayles Senchak has worked as a professional performer and dance instructor since 1976. She began her academic studies with Cecchetti training under Margaret Dallman and at the Washington School of Ballet under Mary Day. Her advanced training continued at American Ballet Theater School, David Howard School and New Jersey Ballet School where she joined the faculty and became a Principal Dancer of the New Jersey Ballet Company. Noted for her versatility she has performed extensively throughout the world. She has toured with Edward Villella Dance Ensemble, Stars of American Ballet, and Kozlov and Friends.
