For more than 50 years, Judy Dollenmayer Studio of Dance's instructors have been dedicated to training students of all ages. And as they offer more than 100 classes per week, there is something for everyone. Their styles range from jazz to tap to hip hop.

During hip-hop classes, they coach students to hit funky, fast-paced movements, and in tap, they teach feet to tap out rhythmic beats. In addition to these expressive forms of movement, the instructors also lead barre ballet fitness classes, which blend dance techniques into calorie-burning cardio routines.
