Wheaton Studio of Dance

Celebrating  our 63rd year of Dance Excellence

Welcome to Wheaton Studio of Dance


We are offering Acro for ages 10 & up on Tuesdays at 8 pm starting January 2022!

If you or anyone you know is interested, you can now register online for these classes! These classes will have the opportunity to perform in the Recital with the rest of our classes.

 Acro Dance is the beautiful fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Our Acro program is based on safe and effective progressions in the five divisions of Acro Dance: flexibility, strength, balancing, limbering, and tumbling. Students will learn Acro tricks such as handstands, cartwheels, chest stands, elbow stands, walkovers, side and front aerials, and tumbling lines.


We are excited to announce that we will be offering a second round of Bring Your Friend To Class  Week!

Every student is encouraged to bring ONE friend with them to participate in dance class during the week of December 17 - December 23, 2021.
Please print out this "class pass" for your friend to participate in class with you!

*These passes must be filled out by the participants parent/guardian in order for them to participate in the dance classes.
