Sassafras Dance Company

SDC Owners Marci Paris and April Thomas 

 Sassafras Dance Company was formed in May 2009 and has been progressing in growth with aspiring dancers. We provide the opportunity for individuals to continue their passion through guidance and artistic vision.
Sassafras provides a spectrum of dance instruction catering to the “non” dancer that offers creative classes, innovative workshops, and a professional performance company. Under the direction of April Thomas and Marci Paris, Sassafras offers a variety of dance genres and fitness training to children and adults. Sassafras has a vibrant energy that enhances individuals to grow to their full potential without the pressure of competing against others on stage. The company is devised to improve the technique of beginner to advanced dancers in an intensive study of different dance genres such as modern/contemporary, creative movement, cabaret, jazz, and hip hop. Sassafras also gives back to the community by working with charities. Some of our past contributions have included The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and The Susan G. Komen Foundation. A combination of inspiration and artistic vision gives aspiring dancers the ability to learn, grow, and perform magnificently doing what we do best, inspiring others.
