Whether as a recreational hobby or an intensive training program, studying dance benefits children in a wide variety of ways...In this world of instant-everything, preparing for a performance engages the student in long-term memory and planning, skills that are less well-developed in our younger generations. Dance engages students mind and body, promotes positive group interactions and cooperation with others, and provides focused, structured physical activity in a non-competitive atmosphere. Dance improves posture, balance, flexibility, and coordination. A positive experience in dance can promote a life-long interest in and support of the arts.
And, along with all of that, it's lots of fun!

Offering the area's most comprehensive program of classes, our studio strives to make quality dance instruction accessible to all. Our experienced, talented staff, can provide your dancer with a positive recreational experience or with the intensive training required for a career in dance. Our studio has a strong classical training base and will always encourage students to take ballet for the polish and technical proficiency it brings to all dance forms. We also understand that ballet might not be everyone's favorite style, and we offer a wide range of classes open to students with a variety of interests in dance.
About Our Studio Spaces.....
All of our studio locations feature floating sprung dance floors for the health and safety of our students and instructors. Raised off the concrete with layers of foam blocks and wood, then covered with specialized dance vinyl (referred to as "marley"), our floors provide shock absorption and resiliency to avoid impact injuries. Studios are equipped with professional, wall-mounted ballet barres, quality sound systems, and full-wall mirrors!
All of our studios also offer family-friendly waiting areas so parents and siblings may wait comfortably for students in class. However, our locations are also very convenient to area shopping, so parents may run errands while students are in class, too!
