The dance studio was originally founded in September of 1981 under the name of Chris & Anne’s Dance Studio. At the suggestion of her dance teacher and mentor, the late Dorothy Lundstrum, Anne approached both the pastor and principal of St. Anne’s Parish who gave their wholehearted support to the idea of a dance studio on site. In those early years, Anne taught ballet and her sister, Chris Maros, taught the tap & jazz classes. Their talented mother, Mary Jane Piazza, graciously accepted the position of piano accompanist and bookkeeper.
Hundreds of young dancers passed through the doors of Chris & Anne’s Dance Studio. Mary Jane retired from playing the piano in June of 1990 and at the end of the 1995 season, Chris retired from teaching. Anne still had two younger daughters that she wished to keep teaching. Therefore, in September 1995 Anne’s Dance Studio was formed. With the support of very talented piano accompanists, and with the addition of excellent tap, jazz & Modern dance teachers the studio has continued on with quality dance lessons.
In June of 2011 the studio moved to its current location at MetroBeat Fitness and Dance in Crystal.
The goal of Anne’s Dance Studio is to provide good solid dance instruction in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. We believe that we have achieved this goal.
