First Place Dance Studio
125 S. Higley Road, #103
Dance Republic turns tots and up into accomplished dancers and instills a confidence and a sense of teamwork along the way.
The 10,000-square-foot studio with seven dance rooms bustles with all kinds of ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, contemporary and lyrical classes. Students are taught by passionate, experienced teachers led by studio director Janessa Clare and creative/hip hop director Chris Thomas.
Dancers can start as early as 18 months with Mommy & Me classes and progress to combo classes, which expose students to the different genres of dance. Dance Republic puts on recitals in June and December and trains several performing and competition teams.
