Excellence in Dance Education

Lynch Dance Institute Offers Expertise with Inspiration

mp_lynchdance3A true arts hub – that’s the vision of Timothy Lynch and Alexandra Dickson Lynch of the Lynch Dance Institute. “A place brimming with educational and collaborative opportunities that reach far into the community including every discipline in order to support, foster, and develop arts in a world that so desperately needs it,” explained Timothy. Today, the Lynch Dance Institute is well on its way.

Nestled between Scripps Ranch and Poway, the Lynch Dance Institute offers dance education to students across San Diego. Classes range from parent and toddler to school-age children to adults. Across all ages, their core teaching philosophy focuses on developing students’ self-confidence and inspiring a love for movement to music. “We provide a joyful, professional, and respectful environment where our students will feel challenged yet accomplished,” said Timothy. “We expect our students to work hard and push themselves outside of their comfort zones, to accept challenges, and to own and celebrate their strengths.” Recently, they began the professional experience program, daytime classes for students preparing for professional dance careers.

“We provide a joyful, professional, and respectful environment where our students will feel challenged yet accomplished.”

Timothy and Alexandra have a wealth of professional dance experience and training expertise that works to inspire and motivate their students. “We have traveled the globe performing and working with world renowned choreographers and teachers,” Alexandra explained. “It is this depth of experience, alongside our post-graduate studies and professional enrichment training, that makes the difference for our students.”

Whether it’s ballet, tap, jazz, or hip hop, every student at the Lynch Dance Institute receives individual attention and feedback. “It is a true privilege to be a teacher, and I believe that it is my responsibility to encourage my students and to help each one of them embrace an authentic sense of self,” Alexandra said.

In addition to instruction, the students also have opportunities to perform. In December, the students will be performing in Mixed Nuts and Holiday Revue, a family friendly holiday production. A spring performance is scheduled for June, as well as summer camps and intensives. Through this blend of instruction, performance opportunities, and community involvement, the Lynch Dance Institute is fostering a love of the arts in all its students.
