Dance 3volution Dance Company is the product of 2 school base dance crews that rose from the Hackensack Public School System. The first dance crew started was at Nellie K. Parker Elementary School with 3rd and 4th graders. Their motto is “Taking Dance and Learning to New Heights.” The program was started to give students a safe environment to express themselves through the art of dance and build self-esteem.
The second dance crew started at The Hackensack Middle School with DC2 (Dance Crew 2) which included 5th – 8th graders. Their motto is “I Came, I Danced, I Conquered. This program took things a step further by developing leadership skills. As the dancers matured, their need for dance, performance, and technique became greater and this was the birth of Dance 3volution (pronounced Evolution). Their motto is “Making footprints for the future.”
Under the leadership of Mrs. Lori Manning and a host of phenomenal choreographers they are able to teach a wide variety of dance genres from jazz, ballet, tap, liturgical and hip-hop.
