About A Chat with Studio Dansu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Studio Dansu is the only performing arts studio in town that offers classes in singing, dancing, and acting. Their adult program is also very diverse with not only dance classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern and Contemporary; but also fitness classes in Pilates, Yoga, and Zumba.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Instructors use fun upbeat music to keep energy going while in class, and through their motivational attitudes and positive approach, they inspire continued success while at home.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Jayme Shimooka, Owner and Artistic Director of Studio Dansu, is a Madison native and has always wanted to open up a dance studio from when she was a child. She is so happy that she was able to return to her hometown to make this dream become a reality.
What do you love most about your job?
Everyday is different. Days might start with a Creative Movement Class (ages 2.5-3), and end with an advanced Ballet or Hip Hop Class. There may be a Private Vocal Lesson followed by a group Acrobatics Class. The variety of classes is what keeps everyone excited about coming to work everyday.
