Dance is one of the best learning experiences that parents provide for their children. Since 1970, thousands of Manhattan-area families have been part of our dance family. We — Sharron Washington and Jennie Washington Stout — are professional dance instructors and co-owners.

We carefully balance high standards with warmth, humor and common sense. We have the expertise and education to take your dancer as far as he or she wants to go. We offer a complete range of dance classes so all students can discover the style of dance that best suits them!

Inspiring young dancers to excel

If you are looking for the perfect place to begin your child’s dance education, Washington Dance Studio is the place. Our WDS experience began eighteen years ago when our oldest daughter started her first class. Her little sister has followed in her footsteps. Through dance, our daughters have learned to be poised, confident, and graceful young women. WDS teachers develop special connections with their students and inspire young dancers to excel not only in dance but in life. We feel blessed that our daughters have been part of the Washington Dance Studio family.
