We have one simple goal at Dancers Corner; to create a caring, family-oriented atmosphere where we help our dancers fall in love with dance. We want to help each dancer learn, grow, and be their best! Our staff is skilled in identifying the specific needs of each individual dancer and we strive to give each dancer the tools they need to take dance as far as they dream to take it. Not only is our staff committed to helping our students become dancers, but also respectful, responsible, loving, and kind humans. At Dancers Corner, we know the importance of family and community and strive to develop real relationships with our students and their families. The encouragement and support amongst staff, students, and parents is what makes our studio a FAMILY!
Classes for ages 2 & up!!
Class placement is at the discretion of our studio staff. Each student is closely evaluated by the faculty and director. Once the dancers progress beyond the combo classes, students do not move up to the next level according to age or the amount of years that they have studied dance. Levels are designed to be repeated for multiple years. They must be able to execute proper technique of each movement for that level. It is extremely important that dancers are placed in a level that is appropriate for each of them, as frustration and even injury may occur by advancing before they are ready. Our staff is highly trained and educated to make the best possible placement for each dancer enrolled at our studio. We look forward to helping them learn and grow in, and through, dance!!

Clogging (Ages 5+)
Clogging is a unique style of dance that mixes a variety of other folk dances such as tap and Irish step dancing to create a "melting pot" of step dances. It differs from tap in many ways; the most common being dancing in time with the music on the downbeat with the heel keeping the rhythm and more control of the upper body. To form well-rounded cloggers, our students learn the basic foundational style of traditional clogging and progress into more modern contemporary footwork and technique. This style of dance is fun and energetic for all ages.
Tap (Ages 7+)
Tap dancing is beneficial in many ways. Basics of tap include increasing cardiovascular conditioning, strength, and coordination. Tap builds strength in legs and feet in addition to increasing flexibility in the hips, knees, and ankles. Cognitive abilities are also enhanced. Tap dancers develop both mental and muscular memory. Tap also develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. Our tap instructors help students focus on music awareness while incorporating tap steps and combinations.

It provides grace, poise, and the technique needed to be proficient in all other areas of dance. Students will learn ballet techniques and terminology. Each class includes barre exercises, center floor work, and across-the-floor combinations. The ballet curriculum is based on a combination of the French, Vagonova, and Cecchetti methods. We recommend taking ballet as it is a fundamental class to support all other dance styles.
