Why Choose Us?

About Us

Tip Toes and Taps School of Dance was founded in 1981 and has developed a legacy of excellence in teaching dance. Over the 3 decades of its existence, Tip Toes and Taps has maintained a commitment to quality dance education to residents of the CSRA. Our core program of study is ballet. It is a highly structured form of dance that is taught with increasing levels of discipline as the students progress in their training and improve their technical abilities.  People of all ages want to learn dance, so some of our programs are designed for very young dancers taught by instructors that both understand and love little ones. We offer classes year round for beginner to pre-professional levels. Our professional staff is ready to train and inspire dancers to reach their potential in a structured, family-friendly learning environment.

Our instructors are all highly qualified and make a point to stay current on trends in the dance industry. They’re chosen on their ability to not only teach, but to relate well to our students.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop young people into our next generation’s leaders by practicing discipline, creative thinking, and community outreach in a family-friendly learning environment in two main areas: dance and gymnastics. As a dance studio and as individuals, we value integrity, honesty, openness, process over product, continual self-development, and personal excellence through dance.  In gymnastics, we strive to be recognized for a unique and inspiring experience that fosters a positive atmosphere designed for superior health, movement, and fun.

Student Choreography Opportunities

Student dancers can be very creative.  We believe in giving them opportunities throughout the year to not only excel as dancers, but to also flex their creative muscles through developing and displaying their own choreography .  Through the study of improvisation and composition, our dancers build their “tool box” and master the skills needed to create their own dances.  One of the main opportunities to showcase such work is the Fall Hunger Series.  This charity fundraising event has featured student choreography from our most creative dancers starting as young as 9 years old.  Do you have something to say?  Come join us and develop your own creative voice.
