The Fei Tian Academy of the Arts-Middletown (FTAA-MT) Dance Department believes that while dance is an expression of physical beauty, the source of that beauty must come from within, for only with the existence of beauty within can there exist beauty without.

The vision of our dance department is to help students develop beauty of both the mind and body by providing students with a systematic and wholesome education in Classical Chinese Dance and Classical Ballet, in addition to also guiding and educating them with the principles of classical culture. Through learning the importance of kindness, respect, hard work, and perseverance through our systematic dance training, students can develop and maintain strong bodies and healthy minds.

Students who are enrolled in the dance department full-time are also held to a high academic standard and must meet or exceed all state and federal high school academic requirements.
