CREATE. Dance Company - An Introduction
WELCOME & thank you for stopping by to learn more about CREATE Dance Company!
We at CREATE believe it is very important to teach not only how to dance, but why!! We give our dancers the opportunity to be better connected with their performances by allowing them to be involved in the complete creative process. They are encouraged to choose music they enjoy dancing to, as well as costumes they love. The end result is a performance where they are 100% connected. We find it very important to place emphasis not just on the instruction of, but the development of dance as an art form. Since our students are given the freedom to customize their training by choosing everything from dance style, to music, and everything in between, they end up with a very personalized dance experience - one they will cherish forever!
"Being in love with dance her whole life, Amy Ruth has driven nationwide (multiple times!!), to share what she feels will be a huge impact on the next generation of dancers. Her childhood dance instructor taught her at a very young age, to use music and dance therapeutically. "Ms Margie," believed giving her dancers the freedom of choosing their own music and costumes to connect them better to their performances. This sparked Amy's passion for the art form, and now, after dancing through 33 years of her life, her passion is to encourage the next generation of dancers, in creating their own choreography. She believes wholeheartedly, bringing life experiences, no matter joyful or tragic to the stage, can be healing and powerful. After nearly 20 years of teaching, Amy currently resides in Southern California, where she works daily in teaching her students to "CREATE"
