We are a proud member of the Ankeny Chamber

Ankeny Dance recitals feature a fast-paced, themed, professional format that is both
entertaining and fun for the performers and the audience. Our recitals are held every spring at C.Y. Stephens Auditorium,
one of the finest venues in the region on the beautiful campus of Iowa State University.
We provide hallway waiting areas and huge viewing windows into our
studios so parents can observe classes all year long. We believe parents have a right to see what they are paying for when
it comes to the instruction their children receive. We also believe that being able to watch your children learn and grow
is as rewarding for the parent as it is for your child. We like it when parents enjoy watching their children becoming better
dancers and young people. Always ask a studio if you are able to watch and enjoy every lesson your child takes.
Ankeny Dance sells premium quality dance apparel such as leotards, shoes and tights at competitive prices in our
studio office for your convenience. We don't make you drive all over town for dance apparel for class.

take separate classes emphasizing ballet and pointe if they choose. We offer separate leaps and turns, technique intensive, and
strength and stretching classes to step up your game. If you want to dance for a career, our professionally-certified instruction can
