Our Dancers Say ...

Dance has always been a part of who I am. I like to tell people that I've danced my way through life and I'm excited to continue this journey with Ascension Dance. I am particularly passionate about ballet and that passion continues to grow thanks to Brianna Cernanec. I've had several ballet instructors throughout my lifetime, but she is one of the best. Her teaching style is engaging and personable. She is amazing at catering movement to an individual's skills. She is also not afraid to challenge the adult dance student, something I truly appreciate. I just signed up for a some online dance classes that will challenge me at my own individual dance level and I'm ready to be inspired by Ascension Dance!
