"The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”
To all our students, parents, patrons and supporters:
It is with deep regret that we must inform you that SALT’s journey here in Gresham, Oregon has come to an end. This is due to many factors, several of which are out of our control such as high costs, lack of adequate space and the unfavorable economic and political climate many Oregon businesses have been dealing with for years. While we certainly have made an impact in our community, we’ve come to the realization that this simply is not an area where we can continue to thrive as a company. SALT Academy will still exist as a non-profit organization due to our continuing belief in the value of the performing arts. SALT is in the process of researching other areas with a more favorable climate where we can plant and grow our non-profit mission and there is a possibility our search may take us out of the state of Oregon. Any updates in this regard will be announced on our website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
We offer many different types of dance classes covering a range of ages and skill levels. Our focus is on training the student to be the best he or she can be in a safe, fun and supportive environment.
Dance styles include ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical and hip-hop and are available for most age groups.
