A Chat with Gotta Dance!
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We are a brand-new, state-of-the-art studio with a student-centered philosophy. We want our students to learn in a fun, encouraging environment that builds skills as well as a sense of camaraderie.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans? Bring clean shoes that are only for the dance floor and a can-do, will-try attitude of fun.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Our owner, Anne, has been a lifelong dancer. She's also the mother of two dancers, an attorney, and an avid community volunteer. Anne wanted a dance studio that would encourage the love of dance in others, whether they planned on pursuing it as a passion, a hobby, or a career.
What do you love most about your job? Watching that moment when it "clicks" for a young dancer—when all their practice leads to the mastering of a movement or routine. It's a wonderful thing to see, and it's often followed by the desire for a new challenge.
