Studio Dans Update- Aug 28, 2015

Classes begin Monday, August 31!

As we begin our 10th year of business we would like to celebrate!

We held our first recital in 2006 with 70 students and will begin this year with almost 600 students!

The Studio Dans staff continues its' commitment to providing a nurturing environment where students of all ages and abilities learn proper dance techniques, correct body alignment, coordination and flexibility. Students are placed in an appropriate class level to assure success in their studies. We encourage each student to take 'ownership' of his/her dance training by utilizing practice calendars, dance challenges and outside dance opportunities. We believe that the life lessons that are learned in a dance class (self-motivation, confidence, respect and teamwork) can carry over to many aspects of a child's life. "Confidence in Motion!"

We are honored that you have chosen Studio Dans for your child's dance education. We look forward to another successful and exciting year of dance!

Studio Dans is excited to welcome our new yoga instructor, Krysta Howell:

For Krysta Howell yoga is much more than simply a physical practice for the body; it is a way to challenge and center the mind. Krysta conveys a rejuvenating and powerful approach to vinyasa yoga. Encouraging students to develop a curiosity and deep appreciation of their bodies, she challenges them to push beyond their comfort zones, take risks, and never stop growing.

Krysta is a sought after yoga teacher who in addition to teaching at Studio Dans, teaches at Haven on the Lake, The Happy Yogi, & Awaken Wellness to name a few. Visit her website at for more info!
