AADP is the first dance academy in Europe to follow a specifically American method of teaching dance. What is the American philosophy of dance education? Each dancer learns and progresses individually and is seen as an individual. Self respect and honesty coupled with respect for other dancers is at the center of everything AADP strives to do. Dancers are encouraged to challenge themselves and measure their progress as a function of their own abilities, not in comparison to other dancers.
In addition to helping students improve their dance technique. AADP endeavors to get to know each student and help that individual meet their own goals on both a personal and spiritual level. This in turn allows the student to truly reach their potential as a dancer. Brooke Desnoes states her goal : “Helping each dancer reach their potential, both emotionally and physically is what gives me the most satisfaction.”
