Nestled within the University of Michigan's central campus, Dance Theatre Studio has built an excellent reputation over the 30 years it's been in business. Adults can check out ballet, hip-hop, and dance classes or strengthen their bodies in Zumba or body-sculpting, while kids make the most of their summers in camps that focus on art, tech, video, and acing the obstacle-course portion of college applications. All lessons take place in three large dance rooms that feature mirror-lined walls, a sprung sub-floor, and a marley surface floor, and nearby rooms also contain portable ballet barres. The studio's high level of comfort extends even before and after class, when dancers dress in men's and women's changing rooms.
Driven by a genuine passion for dance, the instructors at Come Dancing strive to train students in a consistently relaxed atmosphere, placing the focus on fun rather than competition. Inside the studio, they teach the principles of international or American-style ballroom, Argentine tango and milonga, and other Latin dances. The team helms group classes, private lessons, and dance parties, which allow attendees to socialize and demonstrate how well they're adjusting to their new rocket-powered legs. Their specialized classes also provide dance training for brides and grooms, as well as aspiring competitors.
Footnotes' owners Ashleigh Alarcon and Trish Stuckey found a good way to ensure a wide range of dance styles could be taught through their classes—Ashleigh became certified to teach 14 styles herself. Inside the airy, bright, and sunlit Concourse Hall, their crew of teachers instruct in classic styles that range from swing and the viennese waltz to bolero and Country 2 Step or salsa. Brides- and grooms-to-be can also consult Footnotes to create a first dance that wows family and friends.
When asked the purpose of Kenville Studios, the owner quotes a friend who once said, “I’ve never seen an angry dancer.” The studio’s staff helps students find happiness through self-expression, art, and freedom in classes such as ballet, ballroom, flamenco dance, tap, swing, and jazz. They also lead fitness-minded classes, such as Zumba and yoga, as well as kids’ classes and summer day camps.
