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.
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.
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.
