OUR MISSION 

GraVity Dance Company is a goal-oriented studio that is commited to achieving excellence. Inspired by team building and the power of camaraderie, together we strive for greatness both in and out of the classroom. Through cutting edge dance training in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Acro, Tap, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Modern and Improv, at 3 different intensity levels, we strive to create the next generation of highly proficient dancers, teachers and choreographers. Our staff is also dedicated  to always provide a safe, clean, organized and well-equipped facility.

Our Facility 

Amazing dancers need a space that helps them learn and grow. That’s why our facility is fully-equipped with renovated studios that feature sprung floors, a new sound system, and state-of-the art equipment. Just outside the main studios, you’ll find change rooms, lockers, and even a homework area. And if you’re just here to watch a dancer in one of our recreational classes, you’ll find yourself feeling right at home in our  viewing lobby.
