From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Ford Academy of Dance loves inspiring dancers to fight for the dream inside of them. With our old-school work ethic, we specialize in classical ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary dance with special schedules for the home-school community. We refine the already pristine.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Show up ready to have fun and come dressed in the genre in which you are training. Be patient with yourself and don't criticize yourself.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Jasmine Ford was mesmerized at 7 years old when two ballet dancers performed a duet at her school. While other kids asked the dancers if they were boyfriend-and-girlfriend (because he touched her waist during the turns), she just wanted to know the "how" of it all. Now, she shares the how with others.
What do you love most about your job?
Dance prepares you for life, so we love the journey of inspiring dancers to work hard to achieve the dreams that are inside of them. Dancers may come in fearful or intimidated but leave with a heart of fire and determination, ready to take on any challenge in life with grace and fortitude.
