To instill the passion and love of dance, while inspiring self-confidence, discipline, and respect for the performing arts within each individual.
In 2003 Alex E. Simon was invited to perform at the Reichold Center for the Performing Arts in St. Thomas, USVI with the internationally renowned Koresh Dance Company based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As a company member for this prestigious dance company, Alex was given the privilege to conduct a master class at the Reichold. After being overwhelmed with so many dancers that took part in the master class, he decided it was time to give back to his community where he later returned in the summer and founded Cruzan Dance Company later incorporated on June 23, 2005.
Cruzan Dance Company will continue to support our local talent by offering the best it has to offer in Dance and the Performing Arts that will positively impact the lives of our youth and adults in the United States Virgin Islands. Our vision is to become a leading pioneer of dance in the Caribbean where we will offer an elite training program taught by some of the best industry professionals from around the world. Cruzan Dance Company, Inc is a §501(c)3 non-profit organization as described in the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
"Dance is the expressive force that speaks the language of movement. It's a universal emotion that everyone can relate to when you feel the music, free yourself, and dance like nobody's watching"
