Some Facts About Us

Dance should be FUN!

Dana’s Studio of Dance offers recreational classes in all types of dance and for all levels of dancers.  Voted “The Best Dance Studio In Southlake” by the Southlake Journal, we take pride knowing that each class is taught by working professionals in which the goal is to watch your child’s imagination grow while learning correct dance technique at Dana’s.  Our recreational classes are designed to provide the education fundamentals for a dancer who is serious about learning, but does not want the added stress of competitive dance.

Bring on the BOYS!

We are proud to announce that Dana’s Studio of Dance offers more classes for boys than any other studio in the area.  We teach them different styles of dance including hip hop, popping, breakdancing and other traditional forms of dance.  A few places you might have seen our boys perform include the Dallas Mavericks, Dallas Desperados and Dallas Diamonds half-time shows.  Some of our boys have even gone on to perform and or choreograph for and with Jessica Simpson, Barney and Friends, Radio Disney, Orlando Ballet Company and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.  DSOD strongly believes that dancing is not just for girls.

Taking it to another level

For those students who want to take their love for dance to another level, we offer a competitive dance program for ages 5-18 and with multiple levels to give your dancer every opportunity to progress in their learning technique and style.  These classes and rehearsals are taught and managed by season dance pros.   For those students who want to take their love for dance to another level, we offer a competitive dance program for ages 5-18 and with multiple levels to give your dancer every opportunity to progress in their learning technique and style.

We know the DRILL

Dana’s Studio of Dance is EXCITED and PROUD to provide, under the direction of Jessika Palmer (former Texas State Strutter and Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader), area dancers ages 5-18 years the opportunity to compete, perform and prepare for their local school’s drill team.  Jessika is devoted to helping your current or future drill team member progress in their knowledge and performance abilities and help them excel in their dance and drill technique!

Leadership through dance

Dana’s Studio of Dance provides leadership skills through the art of dance. These skills include DISCIPLINE, SELF-ESTEEM, TEAMWORK and CREATIVITY.  In each of our dance classes, your student will be taught by instructors who are passionate about dance, but understand everyone’s skills and interests are different.  Our instructors help your dancer understand that dance is the gateway to so many other important life skills.
