What Makes Encore Performers So Special?
Our studio was created to give students a place where they could escape the competition scene and focus on the most meaningful aspects of dance; the training, the performing, and the relationships. It is not about the awards and trophies. It is about the passion and joy of sharing dance with other people who love it too. Our talented faculty is devoted to creating positive experiences, giving students the tools they need to become confident dancers, and then watching them shine.
