At The Pointe, we are about MORE Than Just Great Dancing!  Our dancers go beyond technique to develop important life skills: learning to be respectful, confident, and hard-working young people who share their gifts and talents with the community.  Because of this focus, our dedicated staff ensures that each dancer that comes through our doors benefits immensely from their dance education.

Our Mission:

We strongly believe in the value of dance education and strive to teach each student correct technique, exciting and age-appropriate choreography, and performance skills.

Our staff and students are so fortunate to be able to dance and perform, and we hope to enrich our community with outreach programs and great performances so the gift of dance can be shared with as many people as possible.

Dance can have a powerful positive impact on all students.  Experiences in the dance studio teach poise and encourage self-confidence, and performance experiences give dancers a sense of personal pride and accomplishment.

“Since our daughter started taking dance at The Pointe Studio of Dance, she’s become stronger and more confident, with a greater willingness to try new things. She has been given numerous opportunities to perform in new settings, which has taught her to be flexible and adapt to new situations. And the instructors are top notch — they are truly invested in making dance a positive experience for every student and go out of their way to help each student be their best. We love The Pointe!”
