Youth & Adult Dance Classes including Ballet, Contemporary, Tap & Jazz



Designed to offer people of all ages the opportunity to learn and perfect the art of performance, Dance Designs Studio dance classes transform students into performers. Located in Fair Lawn, we provide dance classes to the North Jersey area. Our mission is to help turn our students into talented performers offering outstanding ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary dance classes, and much more. We integrate a vast range of the performing arts to heighten the awareness of arts in our community as well as improve our self-esteem and physical well-being.


Unique due to the variety of classes that we offer to all ages, Dance Designs Studio welcomes everyone from toddlers to adults in any of our four studios. Students can attend a jazz, tap, hip hop/break dancing class, or can receive vocal training from our highly certified staff. To ensure the students receive the individualized attention they deserve, each adult and youth class has a maximum capacity.
