Noel Anaya, an award-winning choreographer with a long resume of performances that includes roles in So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque Du Soleil and Tokyo Disney, is opening his own performing arts studio called The Axis Centre for Dance in Chantilly.
Axis Dance will offer recreational dance lessons as well as a competitive program that approaches competition dance from a holistic, dancer-centered perspective. Both the recreational and competitive programs will offer ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, aerial arts, and hip-hop styles of dance. Anaya is joined by six other local, award-winning choreographers and instructors, with decades of combined experience and a proven track record of success teaching together.
“Our main goal is to provide children who love dancing with an intensive program that will increase their technical skills while building values such as perseverance, dedication, teamwork, commitment, and hard work,” Anaya stated. “While we will celebrate our wins, it’s the dancers’ individual progress, the friendships that they make with their teammates and teachers, and the joy of expressing themselves creatively through dance that will make us successful.”
Anaya and his instructors will offer summer classes at Phoenix Elite Cheer Studio in Chantilly, while the new Axis Studio is completed.
