Dolce Dance is a unique type of studio with a special design behind it. As a child I remember dance classes being a big expense, and not always affordable for my family. I also remember the stigma that went with many studios that I visited as a young person. Today I can't remember exactly when I decided to open a dance studio, but I know from the get-go that I wanted it to be different. A place that was available to all families in our community and that supported a healthy take on movement and life. So if you think we have great prices, you are right! And you can bet we will do our best to keep these great prices so that you can always have a high quality local outlet for dance and fitness classes that are fun and affordable.
