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 Des Moines Art Center
  • The Historical Building
  • The Iowa State Fair
  • VSA of Iowa
  • New Visions Dance Project, and others.
We produce an annual recital, to showcase and celebrate your student’s success.
