Welcome to Studio Dance! Thank you for visiting our site, we love to hear from you with any questions or visits.  


The studio began in 1983, founded and directed by Jo Ann Hodge. Tots through college age have been dancing at Studio Dance for more than 35 years.  Several of our students have gone on to pursue professional employment in the dance and entertainment industry, while others have gone on to have successful careers as teachers, lawyers, doctors, and of course outstanding mothers. Studio Dance is home to several second, and a few third, generation dancers. 


In 2020, the torch was passed to Carsen Whitlock Giles.  Carsen has been dancing and/or teaching at Studio Dance since 1999.  Studio Dance is in talented and capable hands!

“Art has the role in education of helping children become more like themselves instead of more like everyone else.”                                                                                                              - Sydney Gurewitz Clemens 

 

Our Philosophy

About Our Studio

Carsen Giles, Artistic Director

Dance should be enjoyed and experienced by all! We believe in a strong technical background for our students; which develops good motor skills, encourages creativity, and builds self esteem.
