Cheryl L. Sington's interdisciplinary dance and fitness training has led her to study with, and sometimes even work with, famed figures such as John Landis, Michael Jackson, and Natalie Cole. As the owner of The Dance Warehouse, she passes on her experience in a setting that's professional, yet noncompetitive and fun-focused. Programs for children and adults span nearly every dance genre, including beginner through advanced training in jazz, tap, hip-hop, and ballet. The studio also branches out to include instruction in areas such as musical theater and acrobatics. To supplement these courses, The Dance Warehouse hosts special workshops and master classes, many led by guest choreographers.
Modeled after The Juilliard School in New York, the Naples Performing Arts Center celebrates dance, drama, music, and film. When speaking with Fox 4 News, the center's owner proudly proclaimed it a facilitator for the "love of the arts for our children." Kids do receive ample opportunity for creative expression in the creative beginners program, which fosters a fun and supportive environment for preschoolers' imaginations to blossom with songs, stories, and future Internet dance crazes.
Both older children and adults can expand their creative capacities with classes and workshops that are both social and instructional. Dance lessons teach the choreography of Latin, swing, and ballroom dances, and music instruction legally marries hands and minds to the keys and strings of pianos, guitars, and violins. In the drama department, students can challenge themselves with the center's Broadway studio series.
