About Us

DanceStation

Our main purpose is to teach dance to young people between the ages of 3 and 18. Our goal is to create a fun, enjoyable, non-competitive, and nurturing environment for our dancers. DanceStation dancers are known for their excellence in technique and performance skills. At DanceStation, long lasting friendships are created, and we take great pride in our close-knit ‘dance family.’

DanceStation is a Cecchetti school (member: Cecchetti Council of America). The Cecchetti method is a series of graded classes designed to train the young dancer for professional work. Though not all students are presented for Cecchetti Exams, the curriculum approved by the CCA is a general guide for all ballet classes. Jazz and Tap classes are included in the regular program of classes until the Intermediate level, at which time students may elect to take separate tap, jazz, modern and broadway classes.

Our Instructors

All instruction at DanceStation is given by professionals qualified by certification from a reputable dance education organization (CCA, RAD, ISTD, etc.), by university degree, or by significant performance and teaching experience.
