    The Arts Education Partnership says dance benefits students by helping them with creative thinking, originality, elaboration & flexibility; it also improves expressive skills, social tolerance, self-confidence and persistence.  As a lifelong dancer myself, I also know that dance has taught me time management skills, discipline, and teamwork. Ida Jew Academies is pleased to be able to offer this unique program and I welcome you and your student to VAPA!
