Known as a dance studio that truly feels like home, the studio welcomes dancers ages 1 ½ through Adults, and offers all students professional and diverse instruction from accomplished teachers. Whatever the goal, Studio East has a program to suit any dancer’s dreams. Whether it’s the recital program (culminating in a performance in June) or competition level classes (for those who really want to dedicate their life to dance) that catch your eye, or even a recreational program (for those who want to just enjoy dancing), Studio East has a class to satisfy your needs. Regardless of the program, all teachers dedicate themselves to the development of the dancer, and each dance instructor brings their unique background, experiences and personality to the studio.
If competing is your thing, the competition team brings their best foot forward at Nationals every summer. This highly regarded annual competition travels all over the nation and has been held in places like Hershey Park, Mohegan Sun, and Las Vegas. This past year at Nationals nearly every group dance competed and scored a perfect 5 Stars, making it into the top ten overall highest scored dances in their respective categories. These dance competitions not only highlight the dedication and hard work of all students, but showcase how the teams work together to motivate and support each other, walking away with pride no matter which trophy is in hand.
The Studio East experience extends outside the studio and into the community. Dancers participate in local parades such as the Riverhead Holiday Parade and Westhampton St. Patty’s Day parade, where they rely on teamwork to build award-winning floats (1st place in 2015)! They’ve had the honor of performing at the grand opening of a car dealership in Riverhead, and the owner, Erin Judd, is always seeking out community events to which dancers can bring their spirit. Students also indulge in the art of dance by visiting the city via field trips at least twice a year where they take workshops by professional choreographers and see Broadway shows that inspire and entertain. These events all serve to broaden the dance experience, developing not only one’s technical skills as a ballerina or tap-dancer but serving to develop social skills, tapping into culture and community-service, and building confidence – ultimately cultivating a well-rounded personality that carries on into adulthood.
Not only are the teachers top notch, the dance programs’ rigorous yet fun, but the studio space itself is designed to bring out the best in each student. The fully operational dance studio is 1200 square feet – the size of an actual stage so that each dancer has enough space to express themselves. The sprung dance and marley floor is the ultimate performance surface ensuring safety and is ideal for any and all dance styles!
So if you are looking for a space to express yourself, learn from the best, make an impact in the world around you, and have some fun, then sashay your way into Studio East to get started on making your dance dreams come true!
