Summer classes will begin June 1st and will run through July 29th for regular classes.

Summer means storybook ballet time at Springfield Dance, and this summer our ballet classes are
going to have a Pirate and Princess theme offered to children 18-months through 6 years old. For camp
enthusiasts, we will have Mini Day Camps. The theatre camp will focus on learning song and dance routines,
make up and dramatic scenes culminating in a performance with a Disney theme. The Ballet (Ice Princess, Pirate Princess and Nemo and Friends) camps will learn all about 3 different story ballets, including props,
make up and a performance.

Check out our full range of Adult Classes...no experience necessary, Many of these classes are conducted
during children's classes so you can get fit while you wait. With BARRE FIT you can get a ballerina body without
being a ballerina! We also have ZUMBA classes, and have just introduced POLE FITNESS to Springfield!

All new pre-pointe and pointe students are required to be fitted for proper shoes after enrolling in classes.
Please make sure you get your child sized in the office by May 1st .

About Us

Welcome to Springfield Dance where we are dedicated to training children in the art of dance. Our superior curriculum includes teaching classical dance techniques to all ages in a fun and creative environment.  All of our instructors are enthusiastic about teaching children and are professionals in their fields of dance. 

Our state of the art facility is located in the heart of Illinois on the west side of Springfield, near Centennial Park.  Just minutes from Chatham, our studio is easily accessible from interstate I-72 making the trip easy from Jacksonville, Rochester, Riverton, Petersburg, Pleasant Plains and other neighboring communities.

We offer a very diverse selection of dance and movement classes for the whole family.  Styles included are:

  • Ballet
  • Tap
  • Jazz
  • Hip Hop
  • Modern
  • Gymnastics
  • Creative Movement
  • Toddler Parent/Child Class
  • Boys Classes
  • Adult Classes
  • Ballroom
  • Musical Theatre and Acting
  • Summer Camps
  • Zumba
  • Pilates
  • Barre Fittness


Our beautiful building houses four large, air conditioned studios with state of the art, injury prevention dance floors.  Our staff is well trained in teaching the students how to dance and keep the body injury free.  We take pride in our dancers and do everything we can to teach them proper alignment.  For dancers having trouble, we offer consultations to help them to stretch and strengthen their bodies the correct way.

Every year we hold a dance recital as we feel that it is important that the children develop an appreciation for the arts and learn about the stage.  We feel it is NOT important to spend a lot of money each year on a showy production that only teaches the children routines.  We keep our recital simple and elegant.  Most of our recitals run approximately an hour and a half, unlike other 3 and 4 hour recitals.  Giving the children a good stage experience will instill a love of the arts, and children who love the arts will grow to support the arts. 

We hope that you choose our dance studio for your family.  Let us help your children grow through the arts.
