We are here to motivate young minds, develop skilled, happy and healthy dancers.


The Art of Dance offers limitless opportunities. We believe that introducing and enriching your child in dance is a wonderful gift that will last forever! Dance teaches poise, promotes good posture, body alignment, musical awareness, and develops rhythm and coordination. It is a craft that increases strength, flexibility and exercises cognitive abilities. Involvement in many forms of dance allows the student to explore movement, music, and creative expression as they learn to dance in a structured environment. Dance is an athletic art form that strengthens the student mentally, physically and artistically. Additionally, dance fosters personal development, confidence, and creates a positive self-image; leadership skills begin to emerge through the natural process of following direction and creating movement with the dynamic and synergy of team building. Our dancers of all ages and levels share one common factor:  they love dancing at Dance Virtuosa.


A young dancer evolves in so many ways through the art of dance. Technical instruction given in a fun, joyful atmosphere while developing rhythm, skill and coordination is a winning combination. Additionally, our studio boasts energetic, bright surroundings with features such as true floor to ceiling mirrors for optimal instruction, and low impact/joint friendly shock absorption floors.
