Studio Rentals

**In an overabundance of caution for the health and safety of our students, Danceworks is temporarily closed until further notice. As we continue to closely track developments regarding COVID-19, the decision to reopen will be made with the health of our customers and employees as our top priority.

The entire Danceworks team is saddened by our current situation. We hope our studio families will enjoy the videos for at-home learning and maybe even have a family dance party, or two! Stay healthy and well.
