Studio of Dance Arts - Dancing since 1932
Dance Classes- What we offer...
 
Dance classes meet weekly in our spacious studio on the second floor at the Benson Community Center.  Our studio has high ceilings, natural light and a professional, non slip Marley dance floor.  Our large, full length mirrors are glassless safety mirrors and were designed specifically for us.  

Dance is for everyone at the Studio of Dance Arts. Your dancer gets personal attention from our dedicated teaching staff.  Your experienced teacher will know your dancer and be able to help them reach their potential.  We are a big dancing family at So Dance Arts. We love to watch our dancers grow from tiny preschooler to beautiful young people.  


Our Preschool, Intro to Tap Classes and Combination Classes are described below.  Our Pointe, Hip Hop and Jazz classes are available as add-on classes.  Still have questions?  Email us or send us a message on Facebook!
