About Us


At Freedom Dance, we focus on providing high quality dance classes to children and adults in a non competitive, socially aware environment. We believe the arts enrich lives of our student and builds  on community through cultural awareness. Our students are encouraged to become technically proficient and at the same time, build self esteem, cooperation, leadership skills AND HAVE FUN! Casual visits are always welcome to see which class best suits you or your little one.


Our mission is to create a studio space overflowing with joy! Smiling faces, children who are discovering and developing their artistic side in a positive environment is our number one priority. We want children to walk away from every class knowing that they worked hard, did a great job and each of them feels beautiful and confident.

Our effective small group, Reformer Pilates classes utilize spring-control resistance to build core strength, increase flexibility, endurance, and coordination. This class strengthens & stretches your entire body, helps develop a lean physique, improves balance, and increases metabolism. These things, in turn, lead to daily life improvements like better posture, graceful and efficient movement, and for many, relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain.
