Dancing is one of the most celebrated art forms in the world. For avid dancer Alexandra Estrada, dancing was a way to break free from all her fears and the things holding her back. On a mission to spread the positivity she got from her passion, she built Fearless Dance Company, an institution made for anyone who aims to take their craft to the next level.
Fearless Dance Company is determined to make all its students succeed in pursuing their love for dancing. The founder wanted the company to be a place where dancers can enjoy to the fullest and explore their capacities. Asked what the story behind the name is, Alexandra said that people should be fearless in trying out new things. Indeed, the things that intimidate people the most could bring surprisingly good results, and for Alexandra, dancing is one of them.
Fearless Dance company is home to some of the most talented instructors in the industry today. Alexandra and her team teach with firm discipline but do not compromise in making classes fun either. They give students the best of both worlds. “We actively give constructive criticism so that our students excel in their craft,” said the expert. “We are able to train our dancers to an elite level where they are ready to go professional if they want,” Alexandra added.
Students get the liberty to choose if they want to learn in private lessons or group classes. Fearless Dance Company caters to what makes each student comfortable and what they need. They offer a variety of classes, including ballet, hip-hop, contemporary, and many more. Offering different kinds of classes also ensures that the company is as inclusive as possible to anyone, regardless of their time or financial constraints.
Fearless Dance Company implores a hands-on, one-on-one teaching approach formulated with personalized instructions and immediate corrections in their private lessons. They offer real value for their clients’ investments. Private lessons are best for students who learn by connecting and replicating the movement presented to them at their own pace. The private teaching method is capable of improving dance skills for both beginners and advanced students.
On the other hand, the company’s group classes are best for students who want to familiarize themselves with various step patterns with partners or peers. Also, the instructors at Fearless Dance Company observe a rotation of partners for participants of their group classes to ensure that each dancer develops the capacity to work with whoever they are paired with. The company offers classes in the traditional style for all levels, from beginner to advanced. There are also specialty classes specifically built for children and teenagers.
Furthermore, to allow their dancers to practice their skills in a social setting, Fearless Dance Company holds weekly dance parties and seasonal or holiday dance parties. The company also competes with other schools in regional and national dance competitions to hone their students’ skills and fighting spirit.
Additionally, Fearless Dance Company has a state-of-the-art facility that ensures its students’ safety and enough room for everyone to hone their talent. The company also offers its rooms for weddings, receptions, musical events, and other gatherings needing a large open space. Alexandra and her team are also looking to expand and maximize their building by holding exercise or yoga classes in the mornings.
