The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

Gift of Dance Academy is a pre-professional dance studio located in Fredericksburg, Virginia that is setting a new standard for excellence in the community! It is owned by Stephanie Tetreault, who received her BA in dance education from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA and has over fourteen years teaching experience.

The studio’s program focuses on quality dance education, offering a wide range of dance classes in which accurate and proper technique are continuously enforced. Instructors follow a consistent and precise syllabus and employ many methods of learning that are designed to fully engage the dancer in each class in order to encourage artistic and technical development. Gift of Dance Academy is committed to providing highly educated and motivated dance instructors who have the ability to “unwrap potential” in each student. They believe in positive reinforcement to instill a love and passion for dance and in providing guidance that students can carry with them throughout all aspects of life. The extensive curriculum provided enables students to become well-equipped if they wish to pursue dance at collegiate and professional levels.

The Gift of Dance Academy also offers many performance opportunities to present students work and talent in a variety of professional atmospheres including dance competitions. Students also have opportunities to take master dance classes with professionals in the industry, perform with current artists, have easy access to information on auditions and conventions, as well as opportunities to be exposed to professional performances at prestigious venues.
