The Footwork Dance Ensemble’s purpose is to promote the art of dance. It seeks to advance the art form of dance by addressing the needs, concerns, and interests of the community and the dance members. This company gives the members, as well as the community, the opportunity to experience new aspects of the art of dance. Through promoting the art form of dance throughout the community, the members will grow in their performance skills, individual talents as a dancer, and overall dance education. Footwork Dance Ensemble was established by Connie Sweeney in April 2011.
