About Debbie's Dance Studio

Debbie's Dance Studio is proud and honored to have been awarded the H&R Readers' Choice #1 Best Dance Studio in the Decatur area. Thank you alumni and current students for your continued loyalty and support. I'm blessed to have had all of you in my life.

DDS...teaching the next generation.

Celebrating 39 years of dance!

Trying to decide between a few different studios?

Since opening our doors in 1978, over 10,000 students have taken dance classes at Debbie's Dance Studio. We started as a very small studio, but have grown to become the most established studio in the Decatur/Monticello area.

It is our instructors that make us unique. Our instructors have been trained in Los Angeles and attend frequent dance conventions and seminars to stay up-to-date on current techniques and dance styles. In a fun, energetic and positive environment, students develop a joy of movement through dance, a sense of rhythm, improved coordination and posture, and learn an active way to express creativity.

Creative thinking skills are developed through dance, as well as learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic. Self-confidence develops as young people overcome challenges to master new goals, learning to apply themselves and accomplish any task put before them. Dance teaches children about music, rhythm and beat. Students also have a better understanding of spatial relationships and learn to think with both sides of their brain. All of these skills enhance a child’s academic performance, as well as their physical well-being.

As a parent, we realize you have a choice between several different dance studios. All schools are not the same. We provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible. At DDS, students will begin learning proper technique from their first dance class along with correct terminology for dance steps.

Today, as in 1978, there are several different studios to choose from. We invite you to compare all of the features and options to see why our school has been chosen more than any other dance school in the Decatur and Monticello area.
