Becky Kern began teaching dance classes in her basement in 1961. She had just five students who paid a mere $5 a month, but before long the tapping of toes had her neighbors complaining so she opened Becky Kern's Dance Studio. Today, Becky's daughter-in-law and granddaughter keep the studio running smoothly whether teaching 3 year olds how to move creatively with their bodies or coaching teens on the competitive dance team. Six days a week, groups gather to practice tumbling, jazz, and contemporary dance moves in front of the studio's full-length mirrors, where students can follow along with instructors. BYOB ballroom-dancing classes are also available for adults, who can pop corks and learn swirling steps during fun, engaging classes.
