Small classes with individualized attention
Every dancer takes class and is known by the owner, Mr Jesse himself! We do not have students teaching classes!
Close-knit family atmosphere
Our dance families know and encourage each other. Need a ride to dance? Don’t know how to make a perfect bun? Another parent will be happy to help! Our families rely on each other and become close during the course of the dance year.
The dancers (and their parents!) make friends with those of other ages and from other school districts.
A positive, non-competitive environment
Our dancers are encouraged to progress at their own pace, without feeling compared to others. Each dancer receives encouragement and validation in every class. Fun is a priority and the development of self-esteem and confidence is our mission.
Our rates have always been the lowest in the region for dance classes. We also offer discounts when students take multiple classes. We aim for our students and their families to be able to afford the classes they want to take!
Jesse’s mom will be the first face you see at the studio front desk and she is loved by everyone! She loves the dancers and is willing to do anything to help!
Fundraisers to help with expenses
Speaking of Miss Sheila, she organizes fundraisers where the proceeds help each individual dancer so that their dance expenses are not a burden. Fundraising proceeds benefit the individual dancer—whether tuition, costumes, or pictures!
We are so proud of our place on Main Street and our role in revitalizing the village of Windsor. We also value our close relationship with the school district. Mr Jesse has volunteered to choreograph for the high school musical, and regularly teaches at the middle school’s Up With Life Day. Our studio performs at the Windsor Town Fair and the dancers have been featured in the Fair Parade. We hold our annual recital at the Windsor High School and it’s a hugely important event for everyone involved! We love being a part of the community and the community is a part of what we do!
