ABOUT STUDIO THREE DANCE AND DIRECTOR TRACI DALKE
Studio Three Dance opened September 30, 2002 with only 31 students. Celebrating our 21st Anniversary Season, Studio Three Dance offers students the opportunity to learn in an inviting, non-competitive environment with great personal attention.
The goal at Studio Three Dance is to teach and mentor well rounded dancers in a safe, professional environment offering small class sizes that provide individual attention to you and your student. Traci looks for the individual differences in the personalities of her students and incorporates those differences in her approach to dance movement. As a result Studio Three Dance has a reputation for providing quality dance instruction in a variety of genres for recreation, competition and professional levels. Classes offered at Studio Three include; tap, jazz, ballet, jazz funk/hip-hop, lyrical and acro. We also have competitive dance teams.
