WHO WE ARE
Dancing Through Life is a safe nurturing environment for dancers of all ages, from the youngest toddlers to senior citizens. We believe that everyone can benefit from a dance class, and everyone should be given a chance to dance.
Through dance, our students improve their coordination, strength, flexibility, and musicality, but most importantly they build self-confidence in who they are. Our message to our students is: When you believe in yourself and work hard, you can do anything!
Our teachers are and will always be qualified with college degrees in dance and/or professional experience for every single student.
Our dance floor is cushioned and gives when landing from jumps and tumbling, saving joints from overuse injuries.
When you pay tuition at Dancing Through Life, everything goes to support the arts. We rent our space from the New Jersey Repertory Company. We are working together with NJ Rep to provide our community with a high quality arts center.
We are more than just dance and performing arts classes, Dancing Through Life is a family. Throughout the year, we hold parties and special events for dancers and their friends and families to socialize.
We create a relaxed, stress-free experience for parents, with straightforward payment plans and warm and friendly customer service.
