since 1979.

Dancing since 1979, Center Stage offers classes in a variety of dance styles for children age 3 – 18 in Western North Carolina’s top rated dance facility. Unique among dance studios in the area, all members of our faculty hold degrees in dance or early childhood education, have danced with a professional company or maintain membership in Dance Masters of America.

Our founder Michele Lee has remained committed to offering the highest quality dance education to students in western North Carolina for over thirty years. The success of Center Stage lies in maintaining positive relationships with our students and forming a life-long love of dance. Many of our former students now bring their own children to class at Center Stage to become part of our dance family!

To me, there is more to this studio than just dance. I feel my daughter is learning life skills such as working as a team, helping others, time management, commitment, and builds her confidence. Let's just say we plan on being here for a very long time!
