"You need to be aware of what other people are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their success, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins" - Jim Stovall
We're dedicated to helping students become their best selves!
Dance is much more than a mere physical activity; it's a journey towards self-awareness, fitness, and enhanced coordination. But beyond these benefits, dance serves as a vital instrument in nurturing discipline, determination, collaborative spirit, and the art of setting and achieving goals in students. Through mastering these skills, students gain the confidence needed to excel, not just in dance but in all aspects of life.

Trophies are nice but students come first!
At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that every student has the potential to achieve excellence. While we appreciate the value of healthy competition, it is not our primary focus. We aim to cultivate an environment where success is not measured by trophies or physical standards, but by personal growth and development.
Our programs are tailored to nurture each individual's unique talents, encouraging students to thrive in their own right. We believe in providing balanced opportunities for all, regardless of age, body type, or inherent skill, ensuring a journey towards excellence that is inclusive, supportive, and fulfilling for everyone.
After COVID shut down our previous studio we signed our girls up for the 2 week trial. From the moment they stepped into the dance studio they loved it!! The teachers and other dancers made them feel welcome and included. I have 2 girls with very different personalities, so many times it is difficult to please both of them with the same atmosphere.. Fast forward 2 years and they both still love it!! The teachers are amazing, they help the dancers learn proper technique all while making classes fun! The staff is very helpful and friendly. It is truly a family oriented studio where ALL are welcome and made to feel special. We just had a real recital with a packed auditorium and it did not disappoint!! It was so very fun and entertaining! If you are looking for a dance studio where you children will have fun, gain self confidence, build character, and learn proper technique look no further!

My experience with the studio has been nothing but positive. It’s exhilarating to see how happy the kids are that dance here are. They are not afraid to test their limits or put on the best performance that they can. This is why they are successful at competitions.
The source of their confidence is not derived from a thirst for a glory, it is cultivated by the wonderful team that teach at ABDC. They provide a truly judgment free environment. They put more importance on the ability and achievements of each individual performer while having
As a dad, I participated in the “Dad Dance”. I came in with zero dance experience and felt completely free to fail :-) And because of this philosophy not only did I learn to dance, I also discovered that I enjoy it and I’m looking forward to taking classes here in the future.

This dance studio is absolutely amazing! They go above and beyond in every way possible to make each child succeed! They’re always willing to help and do everything they can, to make sure each child feels like they’re apart of the dance family! The staff/teachers/directors/coaches are amazing! Their personalities are out of this world and such a breathe of fresh air! My stepson has been here for two months and I honestly couldn’t imagine him anywhere else! If you want your child to succeed, feel at home, and dance like they’ve been doing it their whole lives….Then Anchor Bay Dance Center is the place for them!
