Gotta DANCE! School of Performing Arts, Inc., located in Prince George,
Virginia is in its eleventh year of operation. The studio is centrally located in the tri-cities area and is minutes from
Fort Lee. Since its grand opening, Gotta DANCE! has grown from one to two studios, both conveniently located within the same
building. Each dance room has a professionally installed sprung dance floor. This floor prevents shin splints and ligament
injuries most commonly attributed to rigid surfaces. It is ideal for all forms of dance and enhances the dancers' performance.
Gotta DANCE! offers classes in the following disciplines: ballet (Cecchetti Method), pointe, lyrical, jazz, theatre jazz,
hip hop, tap, modern and baton. We also participate in local community events and offer private lessons. The studio
has a Competition Team and Performance Team. We offer classes for ages 2 and up and also offer discounted adult classes
for college students and adults of all ages!
at Gotta DANCE! is to provide a positive and well structured environment for each of our dancers. Our dance instructors have
degrees in dance and education and professional performing experience. Our focus is to provide a dance education for our students
with an emphasis on technique. We believe in taking hold of all opportunities that come our way! Our students are given the
opportunity to perform in Christmas parades, tree lighting ceremonies, dance competitions, dance workshops, dance classes
at Broadway Dance Center in New York City and The Virginia Dance Festival, a benefit for Richmond Children's Hospital. We
have also had the honor to have Lainie Munro, NYC based choreographer and performer, and Marvin Millora, Prince George native
and lead back-up dancer for Justin Beiber, conduct dance workshops at our studio. We take pride in knowing that any student who comes to dance with us leaves us with a broader knowledge of dance
and a higher self-esteem.
