About

Dress Code.png

"Our daughter has been with Dancerz for 5 years now.  It's the studio we joined when we moved to Kansas City, and we immediately felt right at home.  The atmosphere is charged with energy and excitement, and all the kids truly love coming to class.  Roxanne and her entire team of dedicated teachers care deeply about each and every student and motivate them to reach their highest potential."

Our Studios

Each of our locations boasts two professionally created studio rooms.  Our flooring is either a Marley composite flooring made for dancers or a hard wood floor perfect for tappers!  With each studio also containing a window to the waiting area, parents are able to view their child's progress without interrupting the class.  For our tumbling classes, we have gymnastics quality mats and aids to give our tumblers a safe space to flip and roll.
