About Catherine’s Dance Studio

 

About our Dance Studio 

We believe in getting to know our students as individuals. We believe that proper dance technique is the key to developing better dancers. We believe the way for us to achieve this is through smaller class sizes. We believe that with love and support, a student can do amazing things through her training at Catherine's.

About a love to teach

When she was little, Catherine wanted to be a ballerina. As Catherine got older she realized she loved teaching ballet. Catherine feels that her caring nature and an ability to make each girl feel special makes her a good instructor.

Students come to class to have fun and work hard. The instructors are able to combine their unique gifts to help girls grow and become wonderful people and beautiful dancers. 

Dance Studio that feels like 'home'

For many, Catherine’s Dance Studio is another place to call 'home'. A place to belong.  A student wrote a paper on Catherine’s Dance Studio and wrote the studio was like a ‘family’ to her. Consequently, not only did Catherine make her feel special but the girls she danced with made her feel special too.

About Catherine Stephenson

Catherine’s Dance Studio was started by Catherine Stephenson when she was just 14 years old. She converted her bedroom into a dance studio by pushing her daybed into a corner and adding all the telltale signs of a dance studio: wood floor, a wall of mirrors, a bar and painting the room pink....

When Catherine graduated from UMKC (where she was a dance team member), she was choosing between two career options: teach in a classroom or focus on her own dance studio. Her choice was obvious. Having grown her class list to the point where she couldn’t accommodate any more students, (due to time and space constraints) Catherine opened her dance studio in downtown Parkville.

“I love to dance. I love everything about it. When I don’t dance I miss it. I look forward to teaching students to dance and to see what they think of the dance. It is exciting to see their growth. To see how they develop, to watch them become dancers and become individual people. It is amazing for me to be a part of that.” - Catherine Stephenson

Little and big girls are meant to feel like they belong, and they do. The instructors consider each student they have a blessing.
