Since 1990, our performing arts studio in Midlothian, Virginia has been devoted to the artistry of diverse dance forms in a family-like environment. After more than thirty years in business, our studio is well-known for unmatched progressive programs, technical instructors, and professional facility.
Each student, no matter their age, ability, or aspirations, is given the care and attention they deserve, through every phase of development. For us, dance isn't only art, but expression. And our goal is to build self-esteem, confidence, coordination, leadership skills, and create life-long friendships and memories, all in a safe environment that feels like a second home.
With equal parts passion and polish, our professional instructors lead our classical dance programs with your young dancers’ growth and flourishing at heart.
Our stepping stone for all dancers at Encore. Dancers will learn the basics, fundamentals, and technique to prepare for our other programs.
Dancers in our intensive program focus on continued development and technique, and can also be selected for our Collaborative (Competition) team.
The Encore Collaborative is our performing competition team that leads not only in execution, but also in character.
We have seen such incredible growth when it comes to her skill and confidence.

I can’t imagine her dancing anywhere else! I love that class placement is based on the dancer’s ability and not strictly by age.
— Melissa King, Meriko’s (“Koko”) Mom
These last few years at Encore Studio have truly been a blessing. She is learning so many valuable life lessons — teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and humility.
— Kristen Thomas, Penelope’s Mom
Since that first Little Dancers class, I have watched my tiny, shy, toddler grow into a confident, outgoing young lady.
— Ashley Bennett, Nora’s Mom
We are so excited to get back into the studio and put the final touches on our recital prep for “Putting in the Work”!
We have three big performances coming up in May and we are thrilled to have a full audience again. Ticket sales start April 18th at 10AM.
