Welcome to Dancecapade

Dancecapade Performing Arts Center was founded in 2000 by owner/director, Alice Chien. She created the studio with the belief that teaching sound fundamentals and reinforcing solid work ethic would build not only quality dancers but quality people. It is due to this philosophy that Dancecapade has grown steadily primarily from word of mouth with students of all ages.

A Place Where Students Can Embrace Their Creativity

Most high achieving kids these days are growing up in a hyper competitive environment. With the various academic and extracurricular activities that seemingly dominate a child's life, there is precious little room to pursue other passions. Dancecapade is a place where students can embrace their creativity in an environment that encourages continual learning.

We are proud to share that many of our students are members of high school/college dance teams, professional sports dancers and professional dancers in the entertainment industry. One of the reasons for this success is the professionalism of our staff. Each instructor is trained in their specialized genre either with a dance degree or significant personal dance experience. We're proud of their dedication and patience in developing a well rounded experience with the limited time our students have.

We’re Well Known For Developing Entry Level Dancers

Dancecapade is well known for developing entry level dancers. Beginning level classes are capped at 12 students each. This is to ensure that each dancer will get personalized attention from the instructors. Each class will be divided by age and level of proficiency.

The highlight of the year inevitably is our Annual Dance Showcase. All of our students have the opportunity to hone their craft and perform in front of their friends and family. As you would expect, this is an amazing growth opportunity for our dancers.

Dancecapade also has put together a number of Competition Teams. For our exceptional students, they perform in regional and national competitions against other teams. We're proud of their amazing success at these events.

We Operate Our Studio With a Set of Values

On a personal note, we operate our studio with a set of values. We witness everyday how "fast" kids are growing up. It is for this reason that our dancers are taught routines and given costumes that are age appropriate. Every studio has their set of standards that they are comfortable with. We believe that we can teach this art form in a manner that is consistent with their age and maturity level.

It is our hope that you come and visit Dancecapade and experience dance at an extraordinary level!
