Our Story

Who we are

Back in 2010, Kim had a dream that everyone could enjoy dance without being judged for your size or abilities. She wanted a place where anyone could feel confident and successful on the dance floor, regardless of age or experience. She envisioned a place where the people made the difference and whatever dance you wanted to enjoy could be yours to explore freely. Today that vision of inclusion and encouragement is alive and well. We pride ourselves on offering supportive, fun, and comfortable dance instruction to all ages and levels. Our dream team of instructors and professionals are focused on making each lesson a fun and comfortable experience.
