Vision and Values
The Sonia Balazovjech Dance Company’s mission is to use dance as a powerful tool to raise awareness and funds for various charities and organizations that render valuable services to our community.
To produce meaningful, quality pieces of work with the collaboration of like-minded community partners.
The Sonia Balazovjech Dance Company is committed to training its dancers to ensure high quality technique and performance abilities, while allowing them to find a balance with their professional and personal lives.
SBDC is a platform for self and communal betterment through the physical, mental and emotional process that is dance. Through experiential productions, SBDC bridges the gap between the dance art form and regular community members to connect and relay important messages that raise educational awareness, provoke emotional thought and encourage action.
“Humility in artistry, integrity in actions.”
Freedom of self expression through the dance art form as a way to connect with others.
We operate with trust and transparency in the studio, in collaboration with like minded community partners, and when performing for audiences at witness of our work, and we expect the same in return.
Respect for oneself, respect for other dancers pursuing the same passion and respect for invaluable members of the community, who have helped shape us into what we are today.
With high standards in place, SBDC is committed to training its dancers. Quality technique and performance abilities permit SBDC to achieve its mission in an impactful way. From various dance and professional backgrounds, volunteer members draw on their personal strengths and expertise to produce quality pieces of work that meet and exceed expectations, allowing audiences to enjoy every aspect of the SBDC experience (dance, light, sound, overall atmosphere). For SBDC the quality of educational awareness is on par with the quality of entertainment value and execution.
