Pli? is most famous for our community feeling- students and parents enjoy friendships and form a strong support network- such important elements to encourage sportsmanship amongst our dancers, and create a sense of belonging. Students should not only reach their personal best in dance, but also benefit from increased confidence and social skills.
Pli? staff share a commitment to training students to have solid technique as well as encouraging performance skills and creating a happy & safe learning space. Our staff all foster inclusion, team work, positivity, and encourage a supportive environment for all our students & their families.
