Our staff consists of passionate instructors that have danced and choreographed professionally all over the US. Continuing education is required from attending conventions to stay up to date on current choreography trends to reading the latest physical therapy science regarding dancers’ safety and health. We work together to encourage each other creatively and maintain consistency in classroom management and instruction. Lonestar Dance Center aims to provide a united front to not only provide your child with the best in dance education, but uses the dance studio to teach values such as respect, integrity, responsibility, loyalty, love, perseverance and teamwork.
