A note from the director:
The story of SDS begins many years ago. As a young dancer myself, I had a dream of opening a dance studio. This dream kept me from quitting when things got difficult, it got pushed aside a few times during my teen years, but was always there in the background, waiting for the right time.
The fall of 2000 brought an opportunity to realize my dream and open a dance studio. Stephanie’s Dance Shoppe was open and ready to inspire a new generation of dancers. We started small with 130 students and a staff of 3, and have grown over the years to over 200 students and a staff of 13!
Our purpose here has grown over the years too. Opening SDS gave me the opportunity to teach kids how to dance & tumble, and I knew that would happen. But, what I didn’t know is that I, along with the staff I have grown, would have the opportunity to change lives, create new dreams, and open a whole new world of exploration for students.
I am forever grateful to the many students who I have had the privilege of knowing, teaching, and watching grow up over the years, and look forward to welcoming your child to our studio family, too!
When students and their parent/guardian walk into Stephanie’s Dance Shoppe, they will find a warm and welcoming hello from our Engagement Team. The team loves to interact, and help students and parents feel comfortable in our space. Questions are encouraged!
Students will find their teacher waiting in the lobby for them to arrive, so they may be guided into one of our two studios. On any given day, you will hear the sounds of laughter and happy chit-chat amongst the staff as they wait to see their students. The SDS team of teachers always has a smile to share, and a hand to lead the way.
We are so proud of our students, and all that they have accomplished, so you may see the many accolades that have been earned by current and former students. They take pride in seeing their accomplishments displayed proudly upon our walls. Memories are cherished when viewing the photos along the wall of years gone by. Once a student, always a family member at SDS.
Our studios are open Monday-Thursday from approximately 3:30-7:30pm (during class times).
The studio is also open for private rentals.
