Studio Announcements


Just call the studio at 315-785-0438 or contact us on Facebook for your class time.  We aim to keep class sizes small this summer so we can keep all our dancers and families safe. 

Starting March 14th with our county's decision to close area schools and the Governor's decision to place NY on Pause, we have unfortunately been closed to in-person classes.  Many of our instructors are offering classes virtually.  We hope to dance again with you soon when we have more direction from the state as to how and when we can open.  We thank you for your continued patronage.

*Update* We are allowed to open Monday 7/6!

Our 36th recital has been postponed.  It will be held Fall 2020.  More info to come.


Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible

Welcome to Dance World's 38th Year! 

Dance World is the longest operating dance studio in the Watertown area.  The studio is open 6 days a week and is home to many special area dance groups such as the Northern Ballet Company, Homeschool program, Baton Twirling & Hula dance programs and the Showstoppers Competition Team.


Classes are offered in Tap, Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz, Pointe, Lyrical, Musical Theater, Modern, Tumbling, Hip-Hop, Clogging, Baton Twirling, Hula, Ballroom and Cheerleading for children and adults ages 2 and up at the beginning, intermediate and advanced level.

Toddlers who are 2 years old or almost 2 years old are invited to take our Creative Movement class, which provides learning opportunities in balance, coordination, rhythm, counting, singing and social skills such as being the leader, taking turns, sharing and just having fun with other children their own age.

Our Pre-School program offers all of the same except at a little more advanced level. 

Technique classes are offered for our more advanced dancers as well as our competition team.

All types of dance are available in private or semi-private classes but time slots are limited.  Fees for these half hour or 45 minute sessions are at the discretion of each individual instructor. 


A Message from the Owner

My hope for the children who dance at Dance World is that they prosper in self-esteem, have fun, feel good about what they are doing, and know that doing their best is acceptable.

The art of dance is not academic; not all children will be on the right foot all the time.  Not all will have great rhythm and timing, and some may never be able to do that perfect split or pirouette.

I hope that your child's experience will be rewarding and educational, and that the memories and friends they make will be a comfort to them as they grow in years.

Dance Happy!


Miss Cindy
