- Mission Statement -

The Gail Wildfong School of Dance has been enriching the lives of young people with the art of dance for over 30 years. The late Gail Wildfong began dance education in Gladwin, MI with the belief that this form of art is for everyone.  Our mission today is to keep Gail’s vision a reality by providing students of all ages with dancing experiences in many genres of the dance arts that meet the developing needs of each student. Our faculty is committed to providing all dancers with an outstanding educational experience that is based upon perfecting dance technique in a fun and challenging fashion. We, at the Gail Wildfong School of Dance, are family oriented and pride ourselves on using age-appropriate music & movement and modest costumes in our annual spring recital.

- Why Choose Us -

DANCE FLOOR DESIGN: Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of jumping, which can put stress on bones and joints. Most dance footwear does not provide any cushioning or support, so the shock of dance movement can place a lot of pressure on the knees and back of a dancer. The best way to prevent against potential injury is by choosing a studio with a professional "floating floor". A floating floor is a dance floor that rests on a system of high-density foam, to absorb the shock of jumping. A high density foam base is superior to a "sprung" floor, which usually consists of a wood structure built on the regular floor. The top layer of the dance floor is also an important factor. We are careful to use a floor finish that allows dancers to slide, with a degree of "controlled" slip, but is not slippery so there is less risk of slips and falls. Very few studio locations having floating floors that have over 2000 high density foam blocks under the floor surface and a specially finished surface. Our special floors help reduce the risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired.

CLASS SIZE: If the dance class has fewer students in it, each child will receive more personalized attention, learn more and have more fun. With younger students it is easier for a teacher to maintain control over the class and make sure each student understands the concepts and instructions. Our smaller class sizes make sure that no fundamental concepts are being missed. A smaller class size also allows our teachers to ensure that students are not developing bad habits or improper technique. Our studio limits the students per class for all of our classes (ages 7 and up). Each class also has at least one teacher assistant to allow for more personal instruction.

END OF YEAR RECITAL: Our end of the year recital is completely optional. Unlike some studios that have a costume fee included in their tuition, ours is paid separately. This gives each dancer the option of participating in our showcase without losing any money. Dancers are allowed to remain in the class and learn the dance combination just as if he/she would be performing it. The only difference is he/she would not be put in formations. This is specifically designed for students strictly interested in learning and not performing.

FACILITY DESIGN WITH PARENTS IN MIND: Our new location has observation windows in each of the dance studios so parents can watch their children dance. We also have a designated waiting area for parents to comfortably sit and relax while classes are in session. This spacious waiting area also offers free wireless internet.
