Why Dance Designs?

Decades Of Dance

Designed to offer students of all ages the opportunity to perfect the art of performance.  At our main studio located in Fair Lawn, we provide a variety of classes to the North Jersey area.  Our mission has always been to give each student top notch training in tap, ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and contemporary dance.  We have heightened the awareness of the arts in the community, as well as, improved participants' self esteem and physical well being.

Many of our students have been cast in television commercials, Broadway shows, Radio City, National Tours and major dance companies such as ABT and Alwin Nikolais. Its influence reaches far and wide in the Entertainment, Theatre and Dance world.
