Doreen's Dance School

Doreen’s Dance School is a school like no other! We specialize in tap, ballet, hip hop, jazz and singing for ALL AGES!

Our school provides each student with a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else. With class sizes limited to just 7 students, each student is able to get much more one-on-one instruction from the teachers than is found at most other dance schools. This enables each student to be challenged and to learn and succeed at his or her individual level all while benefiting from a classroom setting.

Doreen’s Dance School was founded 25 years ago by the talented Doreen Alderman. Her professional credits include 42nd Street (Broadway, NYC), 42nd Street (LA), Sweet Charity (NYC), A Chorus Line (Atlanta), Grease (LA), King Tut on Saturday Night Live, and many more. While Doreen has continued to further her professional career over the years she has found that one of her true callings in this life is to teach. In doing so, she has touched the lives of many children and families that have attended her classes.
