The Dance Workshop is dedicated to excellence in dance training. We aim to provide students with the opportunity to learn the art of dance in an atmosphere that is inspiring and conducive to achievement. It is our goal to foster a love of dance while building individuals self-esteem, self-worth, and self-discipline. We are dedicated to developing talent at both the recreational and pre-professional level and our program is focused on helping every student reach their own personal potential.
THE DANCE WORKSHOP is located in Northern Westchester County (Croton) and Southern Putnam County (Lake Peekskill) in two modern, state of the art facilities, with a total of three studio spaces, sprung floors, and vaulted ceilings. We have a private dressing area for the dancers as well as a waiting area for parents and family members.
At THE DANCE WORKSHOP, children will learn to dance according to their personal ability in an environment that is caring and conducive to achievement.
