Bringing a New York flavor to the Gulf Coast has long been a dream of studio owner/director and faculty member Michelle Adams-Meeker. Our studios will provide a solid foundation for the student who wants to pursue a career as a dance professional as well as those who dance for the love of the art. Our focus is to ensure a place to nurture the growth of all types of dancers at all ages. We are rapidly being known as the studio in Mobile to give individualized attention to our students, allowing the necessary and proper dance technique to be taught to all ages of dancers. This allows each one of them to blossom to their fullest potential.
