About Center Stage

Center Stage Dance Studio

Center Stage Dance Studio first opened their doors in 1984 under the direction of JoAnn LoRusso.  Since then, Center Stage has been a happy dance home to hundreds of dancers!

Our mission is to offer a very positive and supportive learning environment while providing quality dance instruction. We offer classes for our youngest students’ first steps into the world of dance, as well as, challenging and high energy classes for our most advanced dancers.  Whether you are a beginner, advanced, or recreational dancer, Center Stage has something for everyone.

An important part of dance training is learning through performance.  This valuable experience helps build a strong sense of self-esteem and self-confidence in dancers of all ages.  In addition to technique and choreography, young people gain a better understanding of commitment, the spirit of teamwork, and the knowledge of what hard work can accomplish…skills our dancers carry with them throughout their lives.

At Center Stage, we value each of our dancers and continually strive to make dance a rewarding and most importantly, fun experience for everyone!  We are a family, and we invite you to join us.  Come be a part of the learning and laughter that happens here six days a week.

We look forward to sharing our love of dance with you!
