We have discounted class cards that allow you to purchase 10 classes at a time for a reduced rate. They are valid for one year.

Not at all! At our studio, all ages and all body types are welcomed. As long as you have a good attitude and are willing to learn and try, you will fit in here.
We are always looking for new, dance related activities. For example, we organize “field trips” to dance performances both locally and in NYC. We have also performed in the NYC Dance Parade in the past. We always welcome suggestions for fun dance events for studio involvement.
We strive to frequently update our website to keep you up-to-date. We also have a Facebook page, located here: Willow Dance Center Facebook.
Bring your sense of humor and sense of fun. While we are serious about dance, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We understand that most adult dance students are just taking classes for fun and fitness. We strive to cultivate that atmosphere.
Leave home any judgement or negatively. We are committed to providing a positive dance journey for all.
