Founded in 1983

Dance Specialties was founded in 1983 by Miss Anita, and she owned the studio for 38 years! In 2021 the studio was passed on to her predecessor, Miss Megan. Miss Megan has been at Dance Specialties since 1991, and became Miss Anita’s assistant in 2003. Since Miss Megan started teaching dance at the age of 15, she has strived to have a fun and loving environment for everyone to come and dance.
