Marla Heeler, Owner/Instructor

Welcome! We hope you will join our dance family. Our curriculum includes:

  • Ballet 
  • Tap
  • Pointe
  • Jazz
  • Contemporary
  • Musical Theater
  • Tumbling
  • Hip Hop 

All classes continue to grow and we’re especially excited our ‘Just for Boys’ classes keep getting bigger and stronger every year. 

We have 4 studios specifically designed and constructed for dance. Adult instructors teach 

all classes and are dedicated to help students achieve personal and physical growth in a challenging, positive environment. 

Dance is an athletic art form. It strengthens 

and inspires – physically, mentally, and artistically. Our students learn proper technique, poise, concentration and confidence.

Dance Training = Life Training

We are also proud to continue our ‘Beyond Dance’ program – a free class specially designed for children with physical challenges.
