Where it all began

For generations, people have been dancing.

It feels good to move, learn grow, and build friendships with others just like you.

50 years ago Gayle Prescott began her dream of having her own dance studio and launched her first classes in her parents' garage. It continued to grow and now I (Rebecca Wyatt) have the honour of taking over and bringing it into a new era! We teach Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical/Contemporary, Musical Theatre and Adult classes with students successfully participating in competitions, exams and shows. With 2 fully-equipped studios, dancewear shop and plenty of on-road parking, the studio makes the dance experience enjoyable for everyone.
