Founder and Artistic Director, Meredith Covert, has always had a passion for dance. With over 15 years of teaching experience she continually saw a need for more than just adult dance classes. There were those devoted to the art, but they lacked the age, body type, or outlet to do more than take a weekly class. It becomes an epidemic of taking classes and dropping them, not because one lacks the desire to dance, but because dance is meant to be performed, and the dancer is meant to be continually challenged. Without these things the dancer becomes disheartened. With this in mind we created a space for these "misfits", Sparsile will serve to display the stars that do not belong to any constellations.
Community performances include dancers of every age, and it was after the 2016 winter show of "The NutTAPper" that the board voted to expand Sparsile Dance Company to include young dancers as principles. We believe our light shines brightest when shining with others, and that the addition of dancers under the age of 18 will only strengthen our mission and reach.
