Studio of Dance Arts   

So Dance Arts has been dancing in the Benson area since 1932. We are one of the longest, continual dance studios in the Omaha area... 

Established, Experienced, Reputable.

 A little about us.....
The Studio of Dance Arts was founded by sisters Lois Kurtz Barr and Donna Kurtz Cartwright in the family home in 1932.  As one of the longest continual dance studios in the Omaha area, we are proud of our legacy and the strong foundation that was provided. Many of our dancers have parents and grandparents that danced with Studio of Dance Arts. There is no greater compliment than a former student bringing their child or grandchild to dance with us. Our reputation is one of our strongest recommendations.  Having danced in the Benson area for so long, our community ties and reputation make us unique among dance studios today. Our heritage is part of our success.                                    
Spring 2017 Update:  Picture Day is Sunday, April 2nd at the Studio.  Please see your email for your dancer's scheduled time.  All dancer's also received a note regarding Picture Day. Studio Tees must be ordered no later than April 14th- you can order online at our Tuition page or at the studio.

Our teachers bring a tremendous amount of experience to the dance floor. We love what we do and it shows. Dance inspires poise, confidence and grace that serves you well in all aspects of life.
