dance classes in tempeYou will get quality instruction at a competitive price.
At DANCE 101 we want your children to be able to receive an excellent dance education while keeping the costs within most family budgets. By offering a competitive price we hope that your child will be able to continue dancing for a long time!

You can start dancing at DANCE 101 when you learn how to walk.
Starting dance at an early age develops physical, mental, and emotional skills while encouraging lifelong learners. We offer a fun and enriched environment where even the youngest dancer can become physically and emotionally invested in movement!

We teach knowledge, creativity and self-expression.
Dance is not just about the steps and choreography. By teaching students dance elements alongside technique we give them the tools and confidence to not only duplicate movement, but to express their self through it.

Boys can dance here too.
Dancing is a combination of athleticism and self-expression. Whether you are a boy or a girl the benefits of dancing are the same. Dance improves coordination, flexibility, strength, and endurance. It promotes psychological health and fosters social interaction. Dancing teaches our children to solve problems and cooperate. At DANCE 101 we are committed to offering classes in which an individual can learn to dance.

You will get to know your classmates.
We keep class sizes small so your dancer not only gets more personalized attention from their instructor, but they gain camaraderie from sharing a small group educational experience. Students learn not only from their teacher but from observing their peers as well. With teacher and peer encouragement small classes create a warm and safe social environment in which to learn dance.

In the past dance has had a reputation to be brutal on the body. At DANCE 101, we take a kinesiological (the study of mechanics and anatomy in relation to movement) approach to technique. Everything from our sprung floor to alignment corrections is in the best interest of your dancer’s health. We believe a healthy body is a moving body!

Our instructors are fun individuals who also happen to be highly-qualified.
DANCE 101 hires individuals who have the love and passion for teaching dance and also the credentials to back it. Our instructors have college degrees in dance as well as certifications from reputable dance organizations. Instructors have access to continued education with some of the nation’s top professionals. This provides our students with up-to-date steps, technique and access to the latest dance trends.

We teach lesson plans.
Based on years of experience DANCE 101 knows that a prepared class is a successful class. Our teachers spend hours creating age appropriate syllabi and lesson plans formulated to build upon material week after week. This ensures your student will gain the knowledge and skills they need to become successful dancers.
