Danceworks has been offering quality, affordable dance education to the community since 1993 and is proud to celebrate its 27th year in Denville.

At Danceworks, your child will enjoy quality dance education in a relaxed atmosphere. Certified instructors provide personal attention to every student. Danceworks’ non-competitive environment allows each dancer to develop his or her own creative personality and fosters a love of dance and fitness that extends into adulthood. Director Christine Kohler’s conservative approach to today’s dance trends is respectful of the developing dancer. Classes are offered in mommy and me, preschool dance, tap, ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical, modern, and hip hop. The studio also offers classes for adults.
Dance with Me, Danceworks’ exclusive program for ages 2-3 years and an adult companion, will be held on Wednesday or Saturday mornings at 9:15 a.m. this fall. Classes will run in 2 sessions of 8 weeks and are economically priced. The fall session will begin in early October. Call or email the studio today to reserve your spot in this popular program.
During the regular fall season, which begins the second week of September, Danceworks will offer a variety of classes for preschool through high school aged dancers on weekday afternoons, evenings and Saturdays. Danceworks is mindful of the working parents’ busy schedule and offers evening classes for many age groups including preschool. Adults can also get in on the action with two levels of tap and an adult ballet program this fall.
For fifteen years, Danceworks has been proud to present its youth performance company, The Moving Company. The Moving Company was established in June of 2004 in order to provide students with additional opportunities to improve their dance skills and perform for the community. The company brings dance to audiences at community events, nursing homes and retirement communities, and nonprofit organizations. The Moving Company has collected items and raised thousands of dollars for charities such as the Red Cross, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Hope House in Dover.
