About

Showstoppers has served the Stillwater community for 37 years!  We offer ballet, lyrical ballet, pointe, tap, jazz/hip hop and Broadway jazz.  Dance classes available ages 3-adult with two sessions per year in summer and fall.

 

We are looking forward to the upcoming year and we hope dancing is a positive experience for everyone. We pride ourselves on quality dance instruction to students of all ages. Most classes are limited to 15 students. There is an instructor and an assistant with each class which gives us the opportunity to provide individual help and instruction to insure students are learning technique and combinations correctly.  Dancing is one of the best methods for developing the mind and body. It adds to one’s grace, poise, self-confidence and overall conditioning. In the classroom, students appreciate the value of working hard and maintaining self-discipline in a learning environment that provides an excellent social activity.  We think we have the right balance of discipline and fun in a positive atmosphere at Showstoppers. Whatever your dance goals, we hope to help you achieve them.
