ABOUT US

Strong. Active. Innovative.

As a mom and a dancer, I always want a positive experience for my children and others.  I created this studio with that in mind. Our mission is to always maintain an inviting place where all children are positively encouraged to be their best self. I love seeing creativity and emotion in dancers. I never expect perfection, just desire, passion, and the willingness to break out and be yourself! Saint Pete Dance Center exists to engage and create strong, confident youth and empower individuals in our community through the art of dance and movement.You can count on our supportive and encouraging faculty and staff to share the joys of dance education in a disciplined, yet positive environment.
I hope to share my passion for dance with your family. 
Love,
Miss Katie
