Dance at The Studio

Dance Classes & Schedule

Within Studio Dance, students will have the opportunity to take numerous technique classes: ballet, tap, jazz, and modern. It’s a strong foundation if they wish to pursue dance—for an audition for college dance or musical theatre program, to perform with a professional company, to choreograph, or to direct their own performances. Whatever their future might be, students will gain the tools and knowledge that will help accomplish their most dance-y dreams. 

Studio Dance is also linked with the Production side of The Studio, which means students will gain confidence performing on stage. Plus, no two shows require the same movement. Newsies needs tap. Tarzan needs tribal. Mary Poppins needs musical theater. Our classes are designed to give them a strong foundation in all types movement and technique that will set them up for success!

With instructors and staff intent on challenging and encouraging students to reach their full potential, with content you’ll enjoy and performances that will stick for years, we’re confident that Studio Dance is the place for you!
