Going into our 9th year we have grown leaps and bounds, but not just by our students improvements. We have grown as a community, as a close dance family, in ways to better provide highly trained pre-professional dancers to give them structure, challenges, LOVE, and perhaps help them pursue this as a career. We also help nurture them to grow in self-confidence and to be able to express their emotions thru age appropriate movement. Dance isn't just a sport, or an athletic art form, it's for many, an outlet to express their self growth or journey thru their lives no matter what age. Here are some reasons why we feel S1D2 sets the “barre” high and is so special.

  Come as you are, no judgment environment.

  Positive atmosphere that challenges and nurtures.

  Non-competitive dance studio.

  Highly trained and qualified college educated dance instructors who all have degrees in dance. Many that are Top 5 in the country.

  Professional Guest Instructors who choreograph and teach guest classes from NYC, LA, Michigan, Philadelphia, Baltimore, etc...

  Age appropriate dance instruction for all age levels.

  Community involved with fundraisers and performances.

  Offers a high quality and inexpensive dance boutique right next door for all dancewear needs.

  All instructors still seek to learn in professional classes, conventions, training certificates, guest classes, and CLI training once a month. We believe practice makes progress, therefore the process of dance and movement is not rushed, but embraced.

  Pre-professional “award winning” dance companies for our youth that give exceeding opportunities to travel, perform at various venues, conventions, Broadway Dance Center, to fundraise, and learn choreography from astounding professional leading guest instructors and choreographers in the industry.

  Classes for all ages from Mommy and Me to Adults.

  Offer job opportunities for our youth to assist in teaching known as our Teacher Trainers as well as offer volunteer hours to our prestigious S1D2 Proteges.

  Annual Professional Showcases for both our Dance Companies and our S1D2 Studio dancers.

  Family atmosphere, our waiting room is the perfect place to make extra time to get to know your dance mom friends.

  Communicative and beyond amazing Office Staff who strive to give the best of the best behind the scenes for our studio families.

  Group trips to NYC and dance conventions to further education, train with different choreographers and build studio bonding.

  Our S1D2 students will learn to express their movement as an outlet and know this is where they feel safe, special & LOVED for who they are. Our Students MAKE S1D2 special!!
