Our Mission

Our mission is to make dance a rewarding, fulfilling and fun experience designed to meet the needs of any student. Our studios offer a complete curriculum ranging in courses for the pre school student to the professional. Great care and individual attention is given to nurturing the abilities of each student to their fullest potential. Our instructors stress not only skills in dancing but social development and effective interaction between pupils and teachers.

Our Story

Our studio was opened in 1971 by Cathy De Frances and has grown into a family business with her daughters Gwyn De Frances and Angie Snow each operating their own locations.  We welcome student’s ages 2 from the beginner through the pre-professional.  We have Combination classes for the recreational dancer, Ballet Technique non performance classes, 2 year old Creative Movement classes, Leaps and Turns/ Contemporary non performance classes, Hip Hop classes and Pointe classes with family rates for multiple siblings.  We also have one of the top competitive teams in the country, Dance Force. Please feel free to call or come by any of our 2 studios and see why you should join our De Frances family!


"I wanted to share a bit of good news regarding my daughter. She was chosen as Colonel (Captain) for this upcoming year for her team in Texas! She is the sassiest jazz dancer, the most emotive lyrical performer and such a hard worker, thanks in a HUGE part to you all and your amazing Mom, Miss Cathy. Y’all literally breathed life & creativity into both my girls- through your dance instruction- and it continues to resonate in them today. So the Dance Force spirit is shining bright in Texas!  Love y’all so much!"
