We just moved to Summerville and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a dance school for my 4 year old daughter (she'll be 4 next month). Thanks!

My daughters took lessons from The Summerville Dance Co. as it was close in town and they absolutely loved it. We weren't really interested in them becoming "serious dancers" just wanted them to learn some grace and have fun. This company was great for that. Some of the others are more intense. At least that was our experience.

Thanks for the replies.

I just want her to have fun and meet some kids her age.

Default Robert Ivey

Actually, the former Robert Ivey studio was purchased a couple of years ago by Veronica Walker, who has taught at both Rollings Middle School of the Arts and The College of Charleston. It has been called United We Dance ever since, and has been expanded and redone. Veronica teaches "fun" classes as well as the more serious competitive dancing. Students come from Mt. Pleasant, Goose Creek, and downtown to dance on this team, and it is regarded as one of the best in the state. Her students have gone on to dance on the USC team, as well as the Alvin Ailey school in NYC.

Default Dance School

My daughter is 8 and this is her 5th year dancing with All That Jazz of Charleston. She LOVES it. This is her second year on the competitive team and she would not do anything else. She teaches tap, jazz, ballet and acrogymnastics.

Give them a call.
Thanks
Joye

Default Dance Explosion

Dance Explosion has 2 locations. One on Dorchester Road and one on Central Avenue by Mr K's Piggly Wiggly. They have had seniors receive full scholarships to college along with 3 students going on the the Governors school for the arts and humanities. They offer great training and fun classes and have a fantastic group of kids that compete. Good Luck

I actually called Dance Explosion three times over a span of about 2 weeks. I thought it would be perfect because (the one on Central) is only 5 minutes from our house. But all 3 times I called, I spoke to the owner, she said she'd call me back but never did.

Default Dance Explosion

If you were waiting on the fall schedule it just came out. If you left your address it has probably been mailed to you. Dance Explosion keeps a book of all calls and there are 2 people that handle them. They would also have written when they returned your call. Maybe you dont have an answer machine or it was just a miscommunication. It is usually said that they are the only ones that actually call people back. Good Luck

It was actually for the summer classes. The first time I called I spoke to the owner's husband and he said she'd call me back. She did, about 2 hours later and said she'd call me back the next day but she never did. So I called again 2 days later and she said she would call me back later that day, she had to check on costumes or something like that ... she never did. I called again about a week later and left a message and again, no call back. So I gave up ... I don't like chasing people around. I don't remember leaving my address but I do have an answering machine. I wish she had called me back ... like I said, it would have been perfect being right up the street. And now my 2 nieces live next door, they probably would have signed up for a class too.
