At Dansations, Every Student is a Star.

Dansations is Western New York’s premier dance center, offering a wide range of dance styles including jazz, classical ballet, tap, lyrical, acrobatics, hip-hop, kiddie combo, mommy-n-me and more.

We Believe Dance is a Way of Life.

Our aim is to foster a love of dance and a freedom of expression through movement, incorporating professional training, technical precision, and of course, having fun! Dance can be a teacher of many lessons including discipline, respect, teamwork and dedication; at the same time, dance releases joy, creativity and self-expression. While we strive to make each class an enjoyable experience, we encourage all students to develop their unique dance style and technique to reach their full potential. Your child will walk out of class with a smile, feeling self-confident, self-aware, and like a star.
