Class Schedule 2018-2019
The Dancenter is conveniently located West of Interstate 35 just North of 12th street in Moore, Oklahoma. For a map and directions please visit the Contact Us page on the website.
We have 6 studios for dance, cheer, tumbling, Zumba fitness, music and voice lessons. Each studio is displayed on big screen monitors in the lobby so parents can watch each and every class if desired. Our largest studio is 2,000 square feet providing plenty of room to practice large production numbers as well as giving the little ones the feel of the big stage when practicing for annual recitals.
Our studios are equipped with raised true floating floors for the dancers safety as dancing on solid wood and concrete floors can damage joints, muscles and ligaments. For more information about proper floating dance floors please visit the page "Proper Dance Floors" on our website. This is one of the most overlooked items when searching for the proper dance facility and is so important for our children's safety.
We built our facility with safety and security in mind.
We have a large lobby, separate Internet access room and a cafe all of which seats up-to 60 adults comfortably. We provide free Internet access for those that want or need access for work or homework or just to update your facebook while waiting for your performing artist.
We operate a clean professional facility and welcome all to come and experiance the wonderful and exciting world of Performing Arts at The Dancenter.
The Dancenter was established in 1979 in a small 500 square foot one room studio in Del City, Oklahoma. Over the years we found the need to expand many times as our student base grew and distance traveled for the average student extended.
We are now located at 1901 N. Moore Ave., in Moore, OK, just north of Elevation Trampoline Park. After make big changes, this is a temporary home while we are making even bigger plans for our new permanent home! We are very excited about what this means for our future.
We provide both Non-Competition and Competition dance classes. While we have the top performing competitive teams on the local, regional and national stage, we do not push or force competition on any student or family, in fact, most of our students participate in Non-Competition classes. However, if you are interested in competitive dance we have a process for placing students in the groups that fit them best and no-one is turned away.
We offer classes for students 18 months thru adult with instruction in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Liturgical, Lyrical, Pom Pon, Tumbling and private lessons in Guitar, Piano and Vocals. We also offer dance instruction and choreography for solo's, duets and trios and production numbers corprate and entertainment events.
Due to the success of our competition students and our nationally recognized Director and Choreographer Lori Hays Elder we are often called on to perform at public and private events around town including OU sports events, NBA games, City and State events, Large Corporate events and Media sponsored events. This is great training for our student athletes that aspire to work in the field of professional dance or just enjoy performing for an audience.
The Dancenter School of Performing Arts, LLC is a professionally run corporation and also has a non-profit arm and a booster club for raising funds to help with traveling cost and funding scholarships.
