Dance Without Limits

Best Dance Program: Finalist

At Dance Without Limits, dance is for everyone. Regardless of age, shape, size, or ability, we believe everyone can benefit from and deserves the chance to dance. Every student is worthy of time, attention, and our best efforts as their teachers and fellow human beings. We’ve found that children are more successful when they believe they are capable of anything.

We’re constantly striving to create an environment of encouragement, validation, and building up. We know that hard work pays off, but that winning isn’t everything. In our weekly dance classes, our dancers learn to set goals and push themselves toward success, without the pressure of competition.

But don’t just take our word for it. Hear from one of our dance moms! “We LOVE Dance Without Limits. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful and the teachers make the kids feel so loved and valued and seen! My girls have countdowns every week until dance day and have made such sweet friends there! We are grateful for DWL and that it’s become such a joyful place for our kids to grow.”
