It is our goal that each dancer leaves dance class with a sense of well being, self accomplishment and a smile on his or her face.
We believe that dance class is an excellent place to learn how to dance. It is also where you can improve coordination, strength and flexibility. However, many more important lessons are learned in a dance class. The students learn to follow directions and be respectful of both the teacher and their fellow students. They learn to be successful team players and to accept the responsibilities that go along with being part of a group.
We teach in a positive and encouraging atmosphere, where we believe all students are able accomplish their goals faster, easier, and with more success than in a stressful or competitive situation.
We believe that self esteem and self confidence need to be nurtured and encouraged from our youngest dancers to our oldest, most proficient students. We take our responsibility to contribute to this very seriously.
We have a highly trained staff of dance teachers. We are the only members of the prestigious Dance Masters of America in Northern Nevada. Dance Masters is the only certified teacher training organization that tests it's teachers in all subjects of dance. It is a professional, certified membership organization of artists and educators committed to the elevation of the art of dance and to provide innovative artistic experiences for the advancement of dance worldwide.
The Dance Workshop is owned by Ann and Craig Peters.
Our State of the Art facility is the biggest and the best in Northern Nevada. We have 3 studios, which enable us to offer lots of classes at convenient times. . Each studio has sprung floors to be gentle on both young and old dancers’ bodies and joints. Each dance room is colorful and clean. We have monitors in each room which display the classes has they are happening. Parents and visitors may observe their dancers while sitting comfortably in our attractive lobby. No more crowding in the hallway to peek in the window!
Our facility was built to be a dance studio so we have large dressing rooms and restrooms for both female and male students.
Our largest studio is convertible to a “little theater” which houses many activities. Our Annual Winter Concerts, our October Glow festivals, the Little Miss County Pageant, the Open Pageant for Miss Nevada, monthly Ballroom Dance Parties, New Year’s Eve Galas, just to name a few. We have also presented many large musicals such as Music Man, Aladdin, and Rock Around the Block. We are able to house large stage productions with large backstage needs.
Our studio is available to rent for classes and activities, parties birthdays, etc.

We have been teaching Dance in the Carson Valley for 32 years and we are extremely fortunate to have been a part of so many lives here. . We provide lessons to students of all ages and abilities. We have had many students who have grown up and continued to dance in college, dance professionally and even become dance teachers. We also have many dancers who have just wanted to try a class or two and then stayed with us throughout their school careers. We hope you will join our Dance Workshop Family!
