Our Mission

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 History

Established in 1995, the studio was purchased in 1995 as an existing studio.  Within the first year enrollment doubled and then tripled over the next two years.  We quickly outgrew our small space in a strip mall and in 2003 we built our own space on International Parkway, just south west of the Wabash exit off of I-72.  Our beautiful 5000 square foot studio houses 4 studios, 2 dressing rooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 waiting areas.  Just on the edge of Springfield, our studio is easily accessible from the highway and county roads.
