What is Elevate Performance Troupe?

Some kids can’t get enough dancing and performing, but all those extra commitments can be challenging for scheduling and financial reasons. Studio Five’s Elevate Troupe gives your child the opportunity to perform outside of annual recitals and pursue their passion for dance, with minimal commitment outside of weekly classes. This fun and exciting troupe performs locally at festivals, schools, nursing homes, and one dance competition. There is not much travel involved, so additional financial commitment is minimal.

What is synergy company?

Synergy Company is a dedicated group of Studio Five Dance Company students who have gone through a placement assessment to measure their technical abilities and performance skills. We hold company auditions once a year where we place students in their appropriate leveled technique classes and dances based on ability and performance style. Synergy Company students display a strong work ethic, dedication, and discipline to improve their dance technique and performance skills. All students in Synergy Company must take technique classes to help build a strong foundation for all dance styles. Company members attend at least one convention each year and participate in all company performances.

What is virtuoso company?

Virtuoso is an extension of our Synergy program, emphasizing pre-professional dance. In addition to the same quality and level of training as Synergy, Virtuoso members will attend more conventions, focusing on building industry relationships and furthering their bandwidth in the dance world. This program is perfect for motivated dancers who aspire to dance professionally and reach an elite level. Virtuoso Company dancers must take company ballet, strength & stretch, technique, jazz, tap, acro, contemporary/lyrical, modern, musical theatre, and hip-hop.

WHY JOIN Studio Five Dance Company?

Whether your goal is to reach the world stage or simply build new skills, we have a program for you. Here are six reasons why you should book in a free lesson with us today…

Small class sizes

To ensure your child receives individualized instruction, we purposefully limit classes to no more than 15 students for ages 7 and up, and no more than 12 students for the Tippy Toes and Tappy Feet classes.

Personal relationships

Positive relationships are our first priority. Everyone who enters the studio is greeted with a smile. We take time to get to know the names of each student and their families. Our door is always open and we love it when you stop in to chat.

Professional Educators

All instructors hold degrees in education and/or professional dance experience.

We only hire people who we would trust with our own children.

Appropriate and Modest

Music is always appropriate for families and kids, costumes are tasteful and modest and choreography is developmentally appropriate.  We believe kids should be kids for as long as possible and we do what is right, not what is popular.

Family Friendly Environment

Parents are welcome to stay and get some work done at our work stations in the lobby, get a cup of coffee from the Keurig, or get to know some of the other parents. Bring your younger kids – we don’t mind!

Growth Mindset

We help each child grow and develop as a performer at his/her own pace. Our choreography is created to highlight each student’s strengths while also building their technical skills. We strive to make learning fun, yet challenging.

We Build Confidence

S5DC works to help each child gain self confidence. There are so many negative messages coming at our kids daily. We believe kids need a safe place to grow, learn, and create. Our kids leave us with the confidence to take on the world!

Watch Classes

There are two cameras in each studio. Sit in the comfort of the lobby and watch your child’s class. You can keep up on what is happening in class while enjoying a cup of coffee. Watch your child grow in technique and confidence.


We believe every child should have the opportunity to share their love of dance. We offer all students, not just company members, the opportunity to dance in the Christmas parades, volunteer at Retirement homes, dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, and participate in studio social events and Master Class workshops.
