Technique-Based Instruction

Dance Arts Studio is a technique-based dance studio providing Central Illinois dancers with a solid knowledge base along with the instruction to pursue dance as a career. Our curriculum is designed to teach proper dance technique, help students progress, and create an appreciation of dance as an art form.
The Dance Arts faculty is college educated with a combined experience of more than ninety years of high-level dance instruction. We strive to teach students how to dance, rather than just a dance.
Classes are offered at primary levels as a combination style of teaching by offering gross motor skills, creative movement, pre-ballet, tap and tumbling. As the dancers progress in years and ability, classes are offered in ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, tap, folk and musical comedy. The diversity of styles allows each student to set a personalized course for his or her training.
