With new interior construction in the summer of 2015, your dance home hasn’t skipped any of the necessary amenities and offers quite a few luxuries as well. The facility hosts 3 dance rooms; each with dimmable LED track-lighting and floor-to-celing-mirrors. The spacious lobby and reception areas include comfortable work-stations for students and parents to get homework done, continue with business projects or even to layout and stretch. We’re also an Xfinity high-speed wi-fi hotspot.

We have included a dressing room with moderate storage as well as multiple coat-hooks to place your belonging and also offer both male and female restroom facilities; each with multiple stalls for privacy. Our cozy kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator to store your between-class-meals as well as multiple, filtered-water dispensers to keep you hydrated throughout the day. Pickup/drop-off is a breeze with our large parking lot which includes over 30 spaces.

Location, location, LOCATION! The studio can be found less than a minute (literally), from the I-88/Farnsworth interchange. Commuting to/from the western suburbs or even Chicago and Dekalb have never been easier!

Studios 1 & 2 have state-of-the-art, sprung sub-flooring with a vinyl-top dance layer as well as floor-mounted and portable ballet barres. Studio 3 is wall-to-wall hardwood and is primarily utilized for our tap program.  Each of the studios have pro-audio PA systems with speakers mounted on the walls for optimal sound quality and to increase space on the dance floor; and all the three studios have 3’x5′ viewing windows with seating to observe classes.

Safety and security is a top priority. 24-hour security monitoring and multiple (HD) interior/exterior security cameras recording activity at all times is a must-have.
