1.Parents, please be sure to take your child's temperature at home every single day prior to arriving to THE STUDIO.

Please be sure your emergency number is up to date on your online account. If your child isn't feeling well or needs to leave, we need to be able to call someone on the emergency number list.

Please wait in your car or on the sidewalk until a teacher comes to the door to have dancers enter the building.

Masks should be on prior to exiting your vehicle.

Everyone will have masks on at all times inside the building.

There are social distance markers on the floor in both dance rooms.

Parents are not allowed to enter the lobby. A teacher will greet everyone at the door. Dancers will enter the lobby, remove their outdoor shoes, jackets etc. and place into an individual cubby, use the touchless automatic hand sanitizer then bring their shoes and/or dance bag into the classroom. Once they enter their dance room, they will sit on a social distance marker and put on their dance shoes.

Typically we do not allow water bottles in class, but during our covid protocol, we encourage students to bring water bottles. We recommend bottles that have flip up straws. Masks will not be removed for water breaks. Teachers will give water breaks periodically. During our summer sessions, students adapted amazingly to dancing with masks.

Hand sanitizer will be used periodically throughout class.

Ballet barres, mats, cubbies, bathrooms and all touch surfaces will be sanitized between classes. Floors are mopped daily.

Once class is over, the process is reversed. Students will take their dance shoes off in the classroom, go to the lobby, put on their outdoor shoes & clothing, sanitize their hands then a teacher will reunite them with parents at the sidewalk.

If your child has multiple classes on one day, they can stay in the studio between classes. If the weather is nice enough, a teacher or assistant will bring them outside in the back of the studio for a mask break. OR you can have your child go to your vehicle between classes if you choose to stay in the parking lot. It is completely up to you and you can change it up from week to week. Please send an email prior to your child's class for that day if you want them to come out to your vehicle between classes. We will assume your child is staying in the studio unless we receive an email.

If your child is not feeling well please have them stay home. If your child has had any possible exposure to someone who has covid or if they test positive for covid you are required to report it and quarantine for 14 days.

Our goal is to create a safe environment where your children can thrive while taking part in something they love and something that resembles a little normalcy.

We greatly appreciate your support!!!


Several years ago we decided to stop attending dance competitions which is when we created our INTENSIVES PROGRAMS. Dance is a visual art. We do not view dance as a sport. It is a physically demanding visual art, but we see it as an art.

After many many years of being involved in the dance competition circuit earning many high score trophies and special awards, we noticed more and more that children were losing their innocent love and passion for dance-that spark that set them off in the first place. The pure joy of movement combined with talent that needs to be shared and appreciated. To do well and get the high scores at dance competitions, many hours of training and many sacrifices need to be made. If you truly want to excel and be the best at something, that has to be your main focus and goal. The amount of training required to do well at dance competitions often prevents the competitive dancer from being able to do sports, school play productions or other extra curricular activities. We also noticed as years went on, the atmosphere at dance competitions became more frantic and sometimes negative and tense. It certainly doesn't seem to bring out the best in people. People from other studios seem to think their time and space is more important than others both in the dressing room areas and out in the audience. Everyone gets a trophy of some sort and instead of leaving inspired to work harder, dancers were leaving feeling let down. We started thinking "Is this worth it? Why are we doing this?" Dance competition entry fees are quite expensive for the parents, the cost of travel adds up quickly and we teachers put in 10-12 hour days for multiple days at each competition.

That is when the concept of year round Intensives came to us. We will train dancers who have the desire to be pushed harder in their training as if they were going to compete, but instead of competitions we will do public performances and exhibitions where the dancers can enjoy themselves and give back to the community. In addition to the performance opportunities, we offer optional trips to NYC to take classes on Broadway at internationally renowned studios where people come from all over to train-studios where the stars in Broadway shows are training. We've also offered the Rockette experience where every few years we see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular then train and dance with some of the Rockettes in their rehearsal hall. We also offer the option to see Broadway shows on some of our NYC trips. Oh and the train rides always seem to bring some sort of entertainment :)

We feel this is a much more positive dance education experience, money better spent at a fraction of the cost, much much less time demands, dancers can partake in other activities and we're creating really cool dance memories to last a lifetime. If this sounds like something your dancer would be interested in, please on Fall Intensives on the menu to the left and read the entire description and requirements. *Summer Intensives is mandatory in to be considered for Fall Intensives. 

Our mission is to empower students with confidence and pride. Our goal is to challenge each student to realize their full potential. Our hope is that this confidence and pride can be applied in all they do. We are teaching much more than dance- we are teaching life skills through dance such as self-confidence, self-respect, self-discipline, respectful interaction with peers and instructors, time management, how to graciously accept praise and accolades and how to handle disappointment, how to set goals and work hard, how to pay attention to details, how to take a correction in a positive way and hopefully with all of that, they will carry themselves with pride and be able to navigate through many situations in life.

It is important to know that everyone gets treated equally at The Studio no matter if you take one class or 10 classes, whether you are a new family or a long time studio family member. We value all of our dance families and each one of our students deserves 100% of our time and attention.

At The Studio, we believe in using music, costumes & dance movements that are family friendly and age appropriate. We want The Studio to be a place the whole family can go whether it be to dance, box, tumble or have a party!

We hope you can find everything you need. The Studio is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - we will do our best to meet your expectations.

With a variety of offerings to choose from, we're sure you'll be happy working with us. Look around our and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
