Papermoon Performing Arts opened it's doors for a soft opening in March 2016 and opened it's first official dance season in September 2016! Under the direction of Danielle Eichman, Papermoon offers classes to all ages in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, creative movement, musical theatre, and student choreography. Classes are offered at the recreational level and the competitive level as well as “pre-competition” classes for dancers interested in starting to dance at the competitive level. Papermoon also offers recreational dance lessons at the adult level.
What Papermoon strives to create is a loving, educational environment for your dancer. Miss Danielle's mission is to deliver quality level dance training in a loving, healthy environment that not only helps dancers become the best dancer they can be, but the best person they can be. Dance shapes the whole person. There is no limit to how dance can enhance your life and we can't wait to share our love of dance with you!
When Miss Danielle was in the planning stages of Papermoon, Wolcott Dance Academy, Danielle's childhood dance studio, unfortunately closed its doors. Miss Danielle obtained many items from Wolcott Dance Academy, including ballet barres, mirrors, and benches. Miss Danielle's students will be learning on the very same ballet barres and mirrors that she used when she was 3 years old! Talk about sentimental value!
In July 2018, Papermoon moved to a beautiful new home on Commons Drive in Litchfield. Our new studio is a 2200 square foot space complete with a large waiting room for parents with two live TV streams to watch class, a waiting room for dancers, two large dance rooms, an outside picnic table, changing room, and more!
