Celebrating over 45 years of Excellence in Dance!

"I love the smaller class size and the individual attention that my daughter gets. The dance school is very family oriented and it is a great place for my child to be. Great instruction from the teachers." Stacey D. mother of Heidi.

"Love Miss Gwen as a Ukrainian Dance Teacher! Her experience and strict attention to detail allow the dancers to excel! The dancers work extremely hard under her direction, building strong work values and personal character. Love the opportunity to participate in competitions which further builds comraderie and team spirit. Shellie, mother of Sarah. (Vesnyanka)"

Our Instructors...

*create authentic dance learning experiences to engage each dancer and support growth in individual training and technique levels.
*engage each dancer in high-quality dance learning experiences: and
*identify individual needs and incorporate these into the dancer’s development.
*set attainable goals that challenge dancers physically and mentally.

“My daughter struggles with coordination.  She is in her fifth year with Veeteretz and has done things she never thought she could.  She is proud of what she has learned and is eager to show off her skills to friends and family.  She looks forward to dance practice every week.  The small class sizes allow instructors to spend more time with each student to develop their skills.  I am pleased with how good she feels about herself as a dancer.” - Wendy, mom of Arikka
