Get The Skills You Need

Mission Statement:   To teach, foster, and sustain basic skydiving skills in a professional and organized learning environment.  SkyDance SkyDiving invites skydivers of all skill levels to participate in fun and appropriately challenging jumps that focus on continual skill improvement, education, and safety.

Whether you’re new to the sport or simply a little rusty, SkyDance SkyDiving wants to help you build the skills you need to safely and effectively jump with others.  Whether you want to jump in small groups or big ways, our organizers want to help you get there.

Tired of doing solo jumps because you think you don’t have the skills?  Come join us!  Afraid you’ll funnel the exit?  Come join us!  Don’t think you’ve got what it takes to fly with that next 8 way?  Come join us!
