The vision at Dance for Kids is to be a safe place for children and young adults to grow and explore, encouraging a love of dance and nurturing life through movement. Dance for Kids was established in 1989, and 10 years later, Karen Chase, a Broadway dancer, actress and one of the original "Laker Girls," acquired Dance for Kids. Shortly thereafter, Dance for Kids was voted one of the top 100 Dance Studios in the United States by Dance Magazine.


Each teacher at Dance for Kids is charged with the responsibility to create a class lesson plan that will be fun, educational and will follow the fundamentals of the Karen Chase method of dance instruction for children. They encourage creativity, rhythm, balance and listening skills in a fun environment.

Classes & Programs

Classes start at age 2 with Mommy & Me and all they way through high school! Classes for the youngest dancers build coordination and motor skills that will benefit students for a lifetime. As students grow they learn ballet, tap, tumbling, and then move on to add jazz, contemporary/lyrical, acrobatics, and hip-hop. Students (from K-12) looking for elite training and lots of opportunities to perform have an opportunity to join our competition and performance teams.
