with all your heart.

Welcome to Catherine’s Dance Studio

We feel blessed you are here exploring Catherine’s Dance Studio for your dancer.

Catherine’s Dance Studio is located in Parkville, Missouri in English Landing.  We offer a wide variety of dance classes to inspire and develop proper dance technique for our dancers.  When you join a class at Catherine’s Dance Studio, you join our family.  We believe through the strength and support of one another, our dancers have the opportunity to grow with us until they graduate from high school. No matter how big or small your dancers’ dreams are, we look forward to making those dreams possible.

We offer a Christmas Showcase and a recital in the Spring. Our Dance Studio always makes a wonderful showing at Parkville Days and our students participate by walking with our float in the parade.

Our dance studio provides dance instruction for girls ages 3 to 18. We recommend starting with our Pre-Ballet program for a solid foundation. Learning the framework of Ballet technique will overlap into many different styles of dance that we offer. View our Dance Classes to learn more about our classes or contact us to help you decide which class is best your dancer! Our registration process is very personalized. We want our students to have the best possible experience at Catherine’s.

    Our Focus is Proper Technique.

    Teaching smaller dance classes for kids was necessary when Catherine’s Dance Studio first began, and it remains the driving reason why Catherine’s students are making their high school and college dance teams. Our instructors see and guide every foot, every turn of the wrist and even every gesture. Smaller class sizes make it possible for our students to learn, practice, and memorize proper technique from the beginning. All instructors believe that proper technique is a foundation for better dancing.

    A dancer with proper technique will learn and grow more as a dancer, which translates into high self-confidence as a dancer and young woman.

    For Nothing is Impossible with God.

    I am so happy to have enrolled my 5 year old at Catherine’s Dance Studio. She loves dancing and wait for Thursday. Ms. Judy and Ms.Catherine are so supportive and always ready to help.

    An amazing dancer, an amazing teacher, an amazing friend, and two amazing mothers. I would never trust my daughters’ dance education to anyone else.

    I am so proud to call Catherine’s Dance Studio our dance home. Judy and Catherine are always so supportive of my daughter, They see her special gifts and unique talents more than any teacher we’ve ever had. They encourage her and that is amazing to see as a parent. The Parkville days Parade was a testament to the support and love that Catherine’s Dance Studio has from students and parents. It was a sea of Pink down Main Street in August! It was awesome to see! The recitals are wonderful! This mother-daughter duo is incredible!

    I started dancing at Catherine’s Dance Studio when I was 13. Most girls begin dance very young, but even with my lack of experience Catherine took the time to teach me everything I needed to know. Because of the individual attention I received from Catherine I was able to accomplish many things I never thought possible. Catherine’s Dance Studio helped me fulfill my dream of being on my high school dance team and now I am a Cheerleader at Park University. In just five short years I learned to perform at a high school level and now a college level, and I owe all of that to Catherine’s Dance Studio.

    Hi, just wanted to touch base with you and tell you that we attended the dance recital dress rehearsal on Saturday as grandparents of Annie and Emma Jones.   Your girls did an awesome job and I was so impressed that you were so calm and focused the whole time before and during the rehearsal.   I was also very happy to see my granddaughters in a studio where the costumes and dances are modest and appropriate.   That is very important to me as a grandma.   That’s it – just thought that good feedback is always welcome :o)    God is good!

    I’ve learned so much here about not only dance but about life and myself. This is more than just a dance studio; its a family.
