As the resident dance school of SkyStone Conservatory of The Arts, Dance Project St Louis (DPSL) continues in the proud educational tradition that has been upheld since 1969. Dance Project’s goal is to teach and prepare every student well, to provide a positive and uplifting environment, and the knowledge and skills students need if they choose a career in dance. Dance Project Saint Louis is dedicated to providing an excellent dance education and creative and challenging performing opportunities for students. Nearly forty Dance Project students have received college scholarships for dance.

Dance Project believes first and foremost that confidence and a positive attitude are necessary for a student to succeed in the field of dance.   DPSL provides a positive learning and training experience for students who are not interested in competitive dance. Though this philosophy is certainly not the norm in dance education today, Dance Project believes that dance competitions can be counter-productive to a child’s dance education.  Dance Project students enjoy the opportunity to participate in many community, statewide, and national performances.
