About Us

Ovation Studios opened in Carthage in 2007. Our mission is to develpe students that value dance as an art form, value themselves and those around them, and flourish not only in dance, but in life! We are a More Than Just Great Dancing affliliate studio and a certified through Youth Protection Advocates in Dance. We started as a very small studio but have grown to become one of the largest studios in the area. We do not believe we are the best because we’re the biggest. Instead, we believe we’re the biggest because families think we are the best. 

 

 

 

 

Here are some of things that set Ovation Studios apart...

VARIETY

Ovation Studios is the only studio in the area to offer dance, tumbling, and baton twirling. We also offer classes in 7 different dance styles and each style is taught in a different class. Every style of dance is different and unique. We believe that to fully embrace each style it must be studied separately.

INSTRUCTORS

Our staff and instructors are all CPR certified and background checked. As well as certified YPAD (Youth Protection Advocates in Dnace) Instructors.
Students reap the duel benefits of working with multiple instructors and being taught from a unified syllabus. Scroll down to meet our staff! 

STYLE

We strive to offer our students a current and relevant dance education. Our instructors strive to stay up-to-date and contemporary with our teaching methods and styles. Our ballet curriculum is based on the Vaganova ballet technique.

YPAD CERTIFIED

We are the only YPAD Certified Studio in the area. Our goal is to keep students happy, healthy and safe! Learn more about Youth Protection Advocates in Dance here!
Class content, costumes, and music at Ovation Studios is always age appropriate. We support family values and make sure students are only exposed to positive things that are suitable for their age.

FACILITIES

Our studio is in a convenient location with ample parking. The studio has 3 separate dance studio rooms, a large tumbling/baton twirling gym, large family friendly lobby, and accessible restrooms. We have closed circuit cameras located in each classroom with monitors in the lobby.  This makes it possible for the student to have their full concentration on the teacher and the material being taught while allowing the parent to get a “sneak peek” at their child’s improvement and learning.

OFFICE STAFF

We have front desk staff avalible during all teaching hours, every day. These staff members are avaliable to answer any questions you have in person or over the phone.
