For the staff at Cathy's Dance Studio, dance instruction is about more than just perfecting a tap routine or executing a proper pas de chat. It's also about building character. Each session encourages young people to bond, gain confidence, and form enduring friendships in a noncompetitive environment. This has been a part of the school's mission ever since Miss Cathy Dooley founded it in 1956, with the aim of sharing the joy of dance with aspiring students throughout Queens. Under the direction of Miss Michelle–who studied under such legends as Gregory Hines and Brenda Bufalino–this tradition continues. For over 57 years, the studio's combination of quality instruction and friendly atmosphere has earned it accolades from sources from tap legend Charles "Honi" Coles to Mayor Bloomberg. Students commute from all five boroughs to attend its ballet, jazz, hip hop, and tap classes and show off cutting-edge moves at an extravagant year-end gala performance.
