The Dance Place provides intellectually stimulating, physically challenging, age appropriate, technical dance training in a creative environment .

We emphasize the development of the students’ sense of compassion and community minded behaviors as well as providing opportunities for them to develop a choreographic voice with dramatic context.

Your student may have the opportunity to dance for special events here at The Dance Place.

Students may have the opportunity to perform at: 

  • The Iowa State Fair Fun Forest Family Fun
  • New Visions Dance Group 
  • Collaboration with Iowa Dance Theatre
  • We produce an annual recital, to showcase and celebrate your student’s success.
