Professional dancer Annette Osinski founded Center Stage Dance Studio 29 years ago, providing a space for students of all ages to compose florid symphonies of bodily self-expression. Students can bring enlightenment to their feet with one of the many dance classes, including tap, ballet, and hip-hop. Center Stage’s instructors guide shuffling limbs and graceful hands through a series of moves. Inspiration-seeking feet can accompany their bodies to the three-hour Over the Roof Tops performance and feverishly applaud as the dancers showcase a mixed repertoire of styles.
The Latin dance-inspired Zumba fitness classes fuse upbeat music with rhythmic movements to boost sluggish heartbeats and increase overall fitness. The morning and evening classes, held Monday–Friday, give rug cutters ample opportunities to bust moves on Center Stage's cushion-suspended hardwood floors, which absorb the joint-injuring shocks incurred while leaping or pirouetting under the weight of a reverse human pyramid.
