Dancing, singing, acting - we have it all!
SALT/KAD Center for the Performing Arts is a Christian-founded training center for the Performing Arts focusing on Dance, Drama, and Voice instruction.SALT/KAD is actually a combination of two dance academies which joined forces in 2011 in order to offer a broader array of classes at varying skill levels more efficiently than as individual operations.Founded in March of 2007 by Regina Badger and Harvest Moormann, SALT Academy and Performing Arts Company, LLC began with the purpose of introducing people of all ages to the arts without the students or parents having to worry about offensive content being passed off in the name of "the arts". Ms. Badger and Mrs. Moormann believe in promoting a healthy perspective of various forms of dance, theatrical performance, and vocal expression as their mission continues to be: "Saturating the Arts with Love and Truth".KAD Productions (Kerri’s Academy of Dance) was established in 1995 by Kerri Ellis. As a member of both a professional sports dance team and ballet company, Kerri has a diverse performance background. Her career as a dance instructor and choreographer began with ownership of her own dance academy and working as a choreographer for college and high school drama productions.SALT/KAD accepts students at any level with a concentration on training the beginner and intermediate student for the purpose of personal enjoyment, or laying the foundation for a future career in performing arts. Students have several opportunities throughout the year to display what they've learned in recitals, competitions, and stage productions. Students and staff have been honored to teach and/or perform in several well-known places in the greater Gresham area including, Centennial High School, Sam Barlow High School, East Hill Church, River Hills Church, Troutdale SummerFest Parade, Glenn Otto Park, Sandy High School, Phonics Phactory, and many more.You will find a safe environment for creative fun, confidence building, acceptance, and achievement.
