Learn from the Pros - Encore Dance Studio

Encore Dance specializes in quality dance instruction for ages 2-102!

Encore Dance promises to provide quality, affordable dance instruction in a nurturing, family friendly atmosphere. Since opening in 1986. Encore Dance (formerly Dance Movement) has had the pleasure of working with numerous talented dancers and helping them to achieve their goals, whether it be in performing in our annual production, becoming a Company member, competing locally or nationally, or dancing professionally. Among our former students we can boast of a Miami City Ballet dancer,Rockette, Carnival Cruiseline dancer, Broadway dancer, Country Dinner Playhouse performer, professional cheerleaders, and numerous dance instructors, some still at Encore Dance! All of our instructors are well trained both in dance techniques and in teaching dance. I thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to work with these beautiful dancers and teachers.
