Vision will perform at the 7th Annual Charlotte African-American Festival on Saturday April 6, 2019 at 2:00pm
Vision Gymnastics and Dance was founded by Jane Johnson. A former celebrity manicurist and make-up artist from Long Island NY. Johnson grew up as a competitive gymnast and her family could not afford the fees associated with competition. Johnson started tumbling at the age of 2 and has a true passion for the sport.
In Junior High, she was brought on to assist the coach with training the high school team on the floor. Johnson was no stranger to her unique style of coaching and team development. Johnson was known for her creative choreography and unique tumbling passes.
Later on in Johnson's career she began her dance training at Author Murray in NYC. Johnson trained and was then selected from hundreds of candidates as one of there instructors. Johnson started teaching at the Huntington Station location, were she started a hip-hop and jazz class for young students. These students wanted other selections in addition to their ballroom classes. The rest is history and Johnson has been going strong ever since.
Johnson saw a need to develop young inspiring gymnasts and dancers. She decided to make a program that was affordable to all. You shouldn't have to mortgage your home to receive good training. I believe that proper education and instruction is the key. All educators must keep abreast of new and cutting-edge training. We incorporate all the training and development that we acquire and provide affordable, yet quality training to each student.
Our training style incorporates The Horton Technique, to build strength and endurance. Our company offers annual trips to NY to attend Alvin Ailey master classes.
Our focus is on proper technique. We have incorporated our fast track program.
Show Johnson a dancer or gymnast with the passion to learn and she will bring out the talent within.
Vision gymnastics and dance has a broad selection of classes. In each class, you are taught how to perform. A talent Johnson believes is an important addition needed for all performers, dancers, and gymnasts. This is the niche that sets Vision apart from the competition.
If you are looking for a high-quality facility with performance and competition opportunities, look no further. Not a performer or competitor, Vision has a top quality recreation class.
All students are taught at the highest standards, recreation, competitive and pre-professional.
Call today and let the professional staff at Vision Gymnastics and Dance assist your young dancer/gymnast reach their full potential.
