About DWS

"Serious dance training can and should be taught in a safe, nurturing and fun-loving environment - providing a challenging and rewarding experience for all dancers."

- Kathy Costa, Director, DanceWorks Studios

Our approach is creative, educational and supportive. Each student receives individual attention so he/she may grow as an individual and artist as well as a dancer. We offer our students the tools that enable them to develop their bodies and minds wisely, and help them love and appreciate the process that allows this to happen.


We strongly believe dancers flourish in a positive, pleasant atmosphere.

DanceWorks Studios promises challenging and rewarding experiences for all dancers.

We offer a full schedule of classes for children and adults: Classical Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Creative Movement, Choreography, Jazz, Tap, and Hip Hop
