Dance studios and classes come in a variety of styles for all ages. Some focus on fun and fitness while others trend toward competition and professional training. Many offer classes starting with grown-up & me for the youngest dancers, and expand their variety as children get older and more skilled. Whether the aspiring dancer is into ballet, ballroom, jazz, tap, modern, or hip hop, this list has something for everyone from Center City to the 'burbs.
