It doesn’t take long to feel the passion coursing through our studio’s halls. Since 1990, we’ve created space at Encore for all dancers to feel like family — balanced with our beloved staff of professional dancers turned instructors.
We offer a year-round dance curriculum in both classic and modern dance styles as well as summer camps, performing opportunities, and more.
To encourage dancers of all ages & abilities to engage in self-expression through dance.
To offer individualized, multidisciplinary teaching of the highest quality.
To embody an approachable and passionate environment that is welcoming to dancers of all ages and abilities.
To offer a tight-knit, connected community that uplifts every dancer and parent alike.
Encore Studio was created by our Owner and Artistic Director, Karen King, in 1990. Our studio serves more than 1,000 students throughout Chesterfield County, and our annual recital to showcase our dance curriculum has become a beloved community event since its commencement.
Each of our instructors teach with passion, rich experience, and commitment to seeing your dancer grow and thrive. Read more about each of our professional instructors below.
From classical styles like ballet and lyrical to modern expressions like contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, and acro, we have a broad range of options for all movement levels.

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.
