We want to provide students of all ages with the skills they need to enjoy dance for their lifetime

We’re currently celebrating our 43rd year of providing top quality dance education, right here in Ocean City, New Jersey. Our school has continued to grow since we opened our doors in 1981. During this time we have had the joy of teaching more than 4000 local students in our studio. We dedicate ourselves to providing the very best instruction possible. Our 2000 square foot beautiful building is located right in the center of town.


Our facilities offer even more benefits


One of the most import features of a dance studio is the type of flooring used. We use only Marley professional dance floors, which absorb the impact of dancing while allowing the dancer to slide, with a degree of controlled slip. However, the floor itself is not slippery, so it also reduces the risk of falls and injury. We have floor to ceiling mirrors so students can easily monitor their own movements. The studio is also air conditioned for the students comfort. Our convenient central location makes getting to and from the school a breeze.


Large variety of classes


We offer a large diversity of classes including tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary, contortion, tumbling, hip-hop and preschool dance. Our focus is on helping our students gain the skills they need to enjoy dance long after their dance lessons are completed.


Our expanded class choices save time for busy families


Many parents choose our school because in addition to having excellent teachers and programs it is possible to schedule your child in multiple classes on the same day. Our school offers morning, afternoon and evening classes to accommodate more students “first choice” times. Between the pressures of homework, sports and family time, we know how overwhelming it can be to fit in all those activities.
