ABOUT

Contemporary Dance
meets Choreographic Excellence

Fast Forward Dance was created to develop the choreographic vision and contemporary dance excellence of those who participate in the program. Our teachers are highly crafted mentors who believe relationships coupled with technique are the powerful tools needed to stay a relevant and emerging artist. Our mission is to have an integrated program where students connect with other students, faculty, guest artists and the community in an intimate class structure. 

Philadelphia: Our beloved home

With over fifteen premier dance companies, Philadelphia's booming contemporary dance industry gives Fast Forward Students the opportunity to connect with both budding choreographers and seasoned company directors. Philadelphia is America's only World Heritage City, and in 2015, was named the New York Time's #3 city in the world to visit.  Our universities boast top ranked dance programs, our museums are home to the worlds most precious art, and our performance venues have hosted the most premier dance and theater companies in the world. 

The Rock School: Excellence in Dance Education

Winner of 11 consecutive Outstanding School awards from Youth America Grand Prix, The Rock School currently has alumni in every major ballet company in The United States, in Europe and on Broadway. The Rock School focuses on a mission of excellence and the nurturing of young dancers. Our students learn patience, persistence, attention to detail, discipline, teamwork, and self motivation. The school's exceptional faculty, individual attention, unique in-house Academic program, residence, and overall dedication to developing young artists attracts students from around the globe.

The exciting part of working daily with kids and movement is to watch them unfold as they gain a brilliant and glowing confidence when they push beyond their own hesitation. Building the relationship with the students is the foundation to acquiring integrity, confidence and trust. Becoming an artist requires an immense sense of self-awareness and generosity. FFD was designed to engage the students at a core level to help begin the process of crafting an artistic voice through movement.
