Studio Director, Peter Myre, has been dancing since he was in first grade. His mom took him to an aerobics class in kindergarten and she says he loved it so much, that she enrolled him in dance the following year. He began is dancing career at Claudia’s School of Dance. A couple of years later he switched studios and began dancing at Electric Youth at the age of eight. A few years later Electric Youth because Dance Escape. Peter continued his dancing career at Dance Escape until his senior year.
Upon graduating high school, in 2001, Peter was asked to teach the following year. He began teaching younger kids at first, and two years later he became a competition team teacher/choreographer. In 2007, he was awarded a “Choreography Award” by the Star Power Dance Competition for his lyrical dance, “They Weren’t There” starring eight beautiful, dedicated, and hard-working young ladies. As a teacher at Dance Escape, Peter had some amazing opportunities to take classes from famous, well know dancers/choreographers such as, Wade Robson (a choreographer for SYTYCD, Britney Spears, and more), Marty Dew (a hip hop dancer that’s in many movies/tv shows), Doug Caldwell, and many more. Peter has also had the opportunity to take 15 dancers to dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, and took nine dancers to Las Vegas to attend the Tremaine Dance Convention July 28-30, 2010. While in Las Vegas four of his dancers competed.
dreamdance Academy began as a dream to Peter. It has been an amazing journey to create a welcoming environment for kids of all ages to come to, to learn the art of dance. His goal is to push his dancers out of the box. He like to create dances that are not ordinary. Peter likes to create a story and then give his dancers the task of telling the story through their dancing abilities.
Dance is an amazing outlet for kids. It teaches them how to work as a team and to push themselves. The different styles of dance allow the dancers to become a characters, forgetting their troubles for a place in time. Peter always encourages his dancers to leave it on the dance floor and dance out any frustrations you may have. Dance is great for any person.
