About Us

Revolution Dance Center is a recreational studio that prides itself on teaching proper technique in a fun and safe environment. Classes are taught by adult, experienced teachers who challenge students of every level to learn to love dance through superior dance technique. Our goal is to create and build positive self-esteem, poise, and confidence in each student.

Students end the year with a local Spring Recital. The performance is intended to instill in the dancers a sense of pride and accomplishment in what they have learned during the dance season.
