Established August of 1995, our vision was to create a family of students that would receive the personal attention and professional training necessary to become confident and well versed performers in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Theater Arts.
The owner and founder of Dance Theatre Project Mrs. Lisa Cicalese and her staff see their dream come to life when students perform in an original play at a professional theater at the end of each school year. Each performer has an important role to support the story line.
We are proud to have an all certified staff at DANCE THEATRE PROJECT. We use our professional experiences to give our performers an insider's view of the professional dance and theater forum. Our professional instruction and positive demeanor instill confidence, a feeling of excitement, and a love for dance and theater in all students.
