A little about The Dance Studio...
Angie opened the doors to The Dance Studio of Wilbraham, MA in the fall of 2000 and has had great success as the studio enters its 22nd season. Paige began working at The Dance Studio of Wilbraham in the fall of 2016, where she became the competition team director and quickly grew to love her dance family. Angie and Paige decided to team up to expand The Dance Studio's dance family into Windsor Locks. With over 40 years of dance training and teaching between the two of them, they are hopeful that the dancers in Windsor Locks will be excited to join this ever growing and evolving dance family.
At The Dance Studio, our highly qualified faculty comes with not only a variety of certifications, but bachelors and masters degrees in dance and teaching. Our knowledge about a child's development physically, mentally, and emotionally, ensures that we are equipped to provide a safe and supporting learning space where dancers can excel, grow, and create while preventing injuries and strengthening their bodies, minds, and personalities. Our dancers leave as well rounded members of the community.
We aim to stimulate the mind, challenge the body and help you to discover your inner dancer. Our classes are engaging, effective, and designed for both those who seek a career in dance or are looking for the perfect form of exercise. Come dance with us to explore a new world of motion and emotion and get to know yourself in a whole new way.
We'll see you in the studio!

Here at The Dance Studio, the health and safety of our dancers is our number one priority. We are continuing with our COVID-19 protocols to decrease the spread of the virus while in dance class. These protocols are subject to change based on changing guidelines and mandates.
If your dancer or anyone in your family is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive, please do not come to dance class until the recommended period of isolation has passed.
Masks optional (following CDC guidelines)
If your child has an extenuating circumstance/doctors note preventing them from wearing a mask, please inform us so we may adjust spacing for proper social distancing accordingly.
Increased hand sanitization
Dancers are encouraged to sanitize their hands each time they enter and exit the dance room and when they come in physical contact with others.
Increased sanitization of equipment
All relevant equipment is sanitized at the start and end of classes. The floor is mopped after each night of classes.
