The Southern Belles Dance Company aims to foster a love of dance in young girls while also teaching them the importance of self-confidence, academic achievement, and community involvement. Our program is not just about teaching dance moves, but about nurturing well-rounded individuals who can take the skills they learn here and apply them to all areas of their life.

Our dancers have the opportunity to showcase their skills in several competitions throughout the year, In addition to these competitions, our dancers have also had the honor of performing as the opening act and halftime show at NBA basketball games. These experiences not only provide them with a platform to display their talents, but also with the thrill and excitement of performing in front of thousands of spectators.

At the Southern Belles Dance Company, we are committed to providing our dancers with the best possible experiences both in and out of the studio. We believe that our program offers a unique combination of dance training, personal development, and exciting performance opportunities, and we are proud of the positive impact we have on our students' lives.
