  • Evy's Dance Class w Evelyn August 2022.jpg


  • Rediscover your dance roots... from Jazz and Ballet to Lyrical, Burlesque and Broadway

    Class begins with an overall body warm up & light stretch, moving on to specific exercises (standing and on the floor), that strengthen & prepare the entire body to dance.

  • This is an intermediate dance class with foundations in jazz and ballet, a swirl of burlesque, lyrical & modern, a whim of latin, and a flirtation with bellydance. Having studied and performed a variety of styles of dance, Evy occasionally incorporates their physical and emotional qualities to her class and choreography while maintaining her personal flair.

"I feel like I found a secret heavenly place on earth"

There are many, many classes available to choose from, and multiple days of the week to fit my busy schedule. Most of all, I love the women and the openly accepting environment where everyone encourages, supports and recognizes one another for their inward beauty, and builds one another up, boosting confidence in one another.

Sandra Johnson - St Pete, FL

You provide many with a safe, comfortable home for artist expression as well as a place where you can make supportive friendships. People are free to participate as much as, or as little as they have the opportunity and desire to in your services, all of which may provide improved health and fitness,and self-confidence.

Sandy Sayson-Fraser - Clearwater, FL

The atmosphere of the studio is amazing, the teachers are fun and very kind. I'm very happy to be a repeat customer I feel like I found a secret heavenly place on Earth within these doors!!
