The Dance Place Team

The Dance Place Ltd., has achieved national recognition in the dance industry as BOTH an excellent dance studio based on solid technique and innovative choreography, as well as having recpectful, friendly danceteams.  This terrific team work really comes from the top by example.  We are lucky to have supportive, active parents, and above all a talented faculty which give their all, teaching ediquette, values and morality through dance.


Consistent class and rehearsal attendance with positive attitudes are one of the many factors of our success.  Another is our love of dance.  Our goal is to out-dance ourselves, to take responsibility for our own progress, to maintain perspective and be the kind of dancer and the kind of person that will bring joy to our audience and those in our lives.

Our Senior and Company teams experience Bi-annual trips to study and perform in either; Cruise ships, Disney, College Dance Festivals, Workshops, Congresses and Nationals.  They have studied under the same cast members of Broadway shows and some of our high school dancers are already touring with professional dance companies!
