Studio 1 is celebrating 35 years of excellence in dance education. Under the Direction of Kim Haight and the Studio 1 Faculty, we provide quality dance and performing arts education for the preschool to the advanced professional level. The abilities of each dancer are nurtured in an atmosphere of positive motivation, self discipline, and individual attention.
The Studio 1 faculty seeks to enrich the lives of the students through valuable social interaction, the joy of creative expression, and the sense of physical accomplishment found only in the study of dance.
In addition to our weekly classes, Studio 1 is Home to the Star South Dance Company and S1 Hip Hop Crews, which is made up of selected Studio 1 students. Company and Crew provides the more serious students with pre professional training and opportunities to do additional performances, competitions, and study with nationally recognized guest choreographers and instructors . Star South Dance Company was formed in 1987. These dancers are chosen by audition each year in May to showcase our most serious and well trained dancers. Company is open to ages 5 years old through adults.
Studio 1 runs just like any other school system in that classes begin the first of August and run through the end of the following May. Studio 1 is closed in summer months except for summer camps.
