About

Dance School Florissant At DK Dance Productions, we don’t think of dance as a career, but a passion. A positive way to express yourself, to gain self confidence, to feel good about what you are doing. For adults, it can be a chance to get in shape without it seeming like exercise, an opportunity to shut out the stresses of everyday life.  For parents,  it can be an adventure in tumbling and dancing with your toddler and spending some quality, fun time together. Or even a chance to watch your son or daughter blossom while in class, gaining poise, confidence and a healthy respect for themself.

It is this philosophy we impart to our dance students by providing an environment to have fun, work hard and thrive on your feet. DK Dance Productions will challenge your physical strength and endurance and provide a creative outlet for your talent. Don’t think you have talent? You’ll be amazed what our Florissant dance studio can cultivate!

To Dream is to Dance ~ To Love is to Dance ~ To Live is to Dance

“One of my best childhood memories is when I took ballet class. I was beaming on stage with my tutu, stage makeup and spray on tan. I felt like a princess while my Dad sat proudly in the audience, holding the first flowers I ever received (and trying to stay awake and look interested)! Every year at our dance recital, it felt like magic.”

“I danced from when I was 3 until 15. It taught me life lessons – when I fell down, the instructors picked me up. When I was exhausted, they pushed me. We sweated together, laughed together and happily compared our blisters. We were more than just dancers assembled in a dance studio – we were like a big, extended family!”
