The place kids & adults love to dance!
FarmingtonDANCE is celebrating our 20th year of bringing the finest dance education to the Farmington Valley! Our students have opened for The Radio City Rockettes Christmas Spectacular, graced the stages of Times Square-NYC, The Joyce Theatre-NYC, School of the Performing Arts-NYC, Saddler Wells Theatre-London as well as numerous TV events, Disney World, Jacobs Pillow and Caribbean Cruise Lines. Our faculty has performed on the stages of Broadway, toured with professional dance and theatre companies throughout the world as well as produced and choreographed the same....including Disney World! OUR proudest claim to fame...the experience our students absorb while in the classroom. The self confidence and life skills they take away through experiencing the art of dance is invaluable!
