Philosophy
 
Dance Davidson was started by Terilynne Muehleisen Knox in January 1984 in order to provide dance instruction and create expression for children and adults.  Small classes and discipline promote serious growth for students, which has led to a flourishing studio.
 


Chad Macy Photography

Instruction at Dance Davidson is based on the premise that dedication and devotion lead to success, whether  in dance or any other chosen field.  Children and adults need a fun but disciplined environment in which to accomplish their goals.  Not every student will be a professional dancer, but many other goals, such as posture, strength, coordination, grace and artistic awareness, can be achieved through dance. Our quality instruction is tailored to all levels.
