Studio 3 Dance Academy was established in 2022, with the help of three minds that all had one common goal. A dance mom, an instructor, and a loving businessman asked, “How can we create a space that people are truly happy to be in? A place for dancers to perform, grow, and have fun. A place to call home.”
Three caring, dance minded patrons laid out blueprints for a new way of developing dancers. A perfect mix of dance excellence, a caring community, and a foundation of what is right and just. This blueprint was carefully designed with one question in mind, “How can we best serve young dancers?”
