Policies & Tuition

Our Mission
At the Lewiston and Grand Island Dance Centers we believe dance classes should be designed to develop strength, balance, grace, poise, rhythm and most importantly, self-confidence. We encourage our Dancers to broaden their dance experience through technique and performance.

• Our students will learn in a relaxed environment where a love for Dance and Physical Activity will become a positive and permanent part of their lives.
• Lewiston and GI Dance Centers are dedicated to teaching children and young adults the art of dance.
