About the StudioOur Mission and a Brief History
Ridgewood Dance Studio has been dancing into the lives of the community for over 40 years. The studio believes that it’s important for every child to experience the Art of Dance. Learning to dance is a vital part of a child’s development. It helps them develop discipline, maturity, poise, personality, stability, self-confidence and knowledge of music.
The owner, Florence Webber, began taking dance classes at the age of six at Joe Wilson’s Dance Studio and he taught her the love of dance. It has been the most rewarding path she has taken. “It is amazing to see students come and go and grow into fine young adults and also have many students return to the studio with their children”, she explains.
Some of the Studio’s many accomplishments and performances include dancing at: the Apollo Theater, Six Flags Great Adventure, Hershey Park, Rye Playland (WKTU), cruise lines, street festivals, parades and various major dance competitions. Some students have been accepted into acclaimed performing arts schools, including Alvin Ailey and the Rockettes’ Summer Intensive. Come join their great group of students and parents!
