Why Dance at Centre Stage?

You want the best for your child in everything she does. You want an experience that is enriching and professional.

You want your child at Centre Stage.


Centre Stage Dance Studio is Oro Valley’s premier location for dance education. Our mission is to make “every child a star.” This means your child will receive certified technical training along with being instilled with the confidence necessary to truly light up the stage. This confidence will in turn empower her with the necessary life skills to not only succeed in dance, but in the real world also.

Our values:






We teach these values through structured curriculum that weaves these lessons into our weekly classes.

Raising children is an important job. We are here to partner with you to help your child become her very best and truly make a difference in this world and be a guiding light as she owns her place as a star!

Why our program:

Through 23 years of teaching dance in Oro Valley, we have created a program that nourishes the dancer with the technique and inspiration she needs to grow in confidence and technical skill while still balancing a healthy family life.
