OUR MISSION

Vision. Drive. Passion.

The Dance Studio's mission is to bring quality professional dance education to children and adults in a non-competitive atmosphere. One of our top goals is to ensure that all classes are age appropriate physically, developmentally, and socially. We also offer equal attention to dancers regardless of age or ability levels. All dancers are treated equally, whether a recreational or pre-professional student. The Dance Studio stands behind its dancers; no matter color, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or beliefs. Our staff believes dance is the great medium to unite us all and bring us together.  


All of our classes are taught by adult teachers with a BA, BFA or MA in Dance and Dance Education. We strive to bring the most current methods in dance education, injury prevention, and choreography to our students. The Dance Studio in Wilbraham, MA has been in operation for over 20 years and we are eager to expand our dance family to Windsor Locks.


Our motto is, "Nearly everything I need to know about life, I learn in a dance studio." In an article from The Washington Post, Risa E. Sanders spoke about how dance helped her overcome and cope with life's difficulties. She said, she learned hard work, discipline, overcoming adversity, perseverance, dedication and respect from dance. Sanders fondly remembered how dance helped her develop grace, strength, poise, and creative expression that made her the person that she is today.

In these uncertain and unprecedented times, kids and adults alike need these skills and an outlet to express themselves.


Dance as a physical and creative form of exercise, is challenging, relaxing and engages the mind and body. Scientists have proven that music and movements together create neurological pathways that help increase brain activity. This is why The Dance Studio feels so passionate about dance.     


The Dance Studio of Wilbraham is holding classes at The Kids Village, 35 Post Office Park, Wilbraham, MA. Our facility is over 3,500 square feet and our two studios have sprung floors for injury prevention. The spacious waiting area has large windows to view class, a TV, and internet access. When the studio was first opened in 2000, it was located on the opposite side of Post Office Park and due to the growing interest, the facility was moved into a bigger building to accommodate our dancers and their families.
