Welcome to MARYLOU’S DANCE STUDIO, we are proud to share many decades of excellence in dance education. Whether you are a new or returning student we welcome you to an exciting 2017-2018 season of dance. Marylou’s provides children an opportunity to explore the world of dance, experiment and learn technique and enrich their appreciation for the various forms of the art. Since Marylou’s is a family owned business, you will find us to have a fun and nurturing environment.

We treat all of our students as such. Each of our teachers have started dancing with Miss Marylou at a young age and have learned her technique and commitment to dance. We offer an academic year of dance from Sept.-June. We pride ourselves in our dance recitals at the end of the year. We work hard to create a show that will entertain all ages. We believe that hard work combined with fun creates a wonderful experience from start to finish for everyone involved. Giving a child performance opportunities will help with their self esteem and confidence.

We have expanded!!! We are now bigger & better with more Dance room. We are now offering Acrobatics, Mommy & me, Creative Movement.
