HDE Mission Statement


Kristina’s Studio Dance is home to the Heart of Dance Ensemble, a youth dance company.  The Heart of Dance Ensemble provides an opportunity for its members to grow and achieve their highest potential as dancers and more.  HDE is a vehicle to improve our students’ dance technique, enhance their performance skills, and learn the benefits of being dedicated to an ensemble/team.  Members also build new and lasting friendships, a sense of self-worth and confidence, become team players, learn the value of hard work, and have a lot of fun.  The goal of this ensemble is to give our dancers a versatile and fulfilling dance education. The training and performance opportunities we provide help to achieve this goal.


The Heart of Dance Ensemble believes that dancing for greater causes will benefit both the organizations we support and our team members. We give back to the community by performing in Benefit Concerts and at Local Festivals.  We also participate in dance competitions and conventions to push the development of our students’ performance skills and dance technique. Through these experiences, our members gain a deeper understanding of the art of dance and what it means to be a performer.


At Kristina’s, we foster an environment which allows the dancers to gain confidence by improving each performance, learning self-discipline, respect for themselves, other dancers, and the art of dance.  Encouragement and support are offered to every dancer for their efforts both inside and outside the dance studio. We want our members to be well rounded individuals. We will continue to work together to improve our art form as an ensemble that fully embraces dancing passionately, which is the heart of dance.
