The Joy Of Dance

Training Students Of All Ages In The Different Styles Of Dance



At Lago Vista Dance Studio, we believe in the innate potential that exists in every student. We are passionate about helping students find and strengthen the best in them. Our programs allow students to refine their talents while strengthening their weaknesses with opportunities to succeed and meaningfully contribute in diverse areas of the studio.

We believe the greatest gift we can give the artistic community is a dancer who not only has a broad knowledge and strong technique, but who can apply those talents in a spirit of confidence and compassion with a commitment to community service.

Dance is a powerful tool for developing individual leadership skills. The process of learning dance teaches our students to set goals, to work effectively in teams, time management skills, to creatively solve problems, and a host of other character building attributes.


At LVDS our goal is to create distinguished dancers by refining the basic fundamentals of rhythm, coordination, flexibility, proper positions, alignment and turn out to ensure safety and longevity for the lifetime of our dancers. 


We are excited to offer new adult classes! Adults who have never danced before and adults who are returning to the floor after some time away will find a variety of classes and styles available. Drop-ins always welcome.



Our experienced instructors are committed to helping students of all ages find success both in and out of the studio. Our instructors are passionate about helping each student build the confidence that comes from a positive dance training experience.
