About Us

      Some people believe that dance classes are only for little girls, but the truth is, dancing is for EVERYONE – boys, girls and adults.  At Chez Dance, we know that the benefits of dance are simply remarkable.  It teaches coordination, endurance, strength, flexibility and confidence – just read about the professional sports and dance figures who swear by it.  Best of all it is a fun way to begin a life-long regime of exercise, which should begin as early as possible.  Chez Dance in Turnersville is the place to go for the guidance needed to begin a professional career or just dance for fun.   The studio offers a myriad of classes suited for all ages and skill levels.  The youngest program is Mommy and Me (2-3 years), creates a bond between child and parent with fun activities.  This class helps prepare the little dancer for the next level.  Other disciplines of dance being offered include:  Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Modern, Tap and Creative Dance.   The school’s Creative Dance program gives preschoolers the opportunity to enhance coordination, motor skills, and social interaction.  This is the perfect place for children, ages 3 to 5, to learn ballet basics, jazz isolations and develop the imagery skills and poise that are vital in many activities.   These are invaluable skills that will stay with them forever.   In addition to its Creative Dance Program and other more traditional classes, the studio has Street Jazz, starting at age 7 thru adult.  This is a great course for those interested in developing rhythm and learning the latest style of Hip Hop.  This class may be particularly appealing to the boys, one of the most neglected groups of young dancers.

The artistic director, Roseann Mastrogiacomo Gatto, has found that boys are often reluctant to take traditional dance classes.  However, they should remember some of the finest athletes dabble in ballet and other dance forms as a way to improve flexibility and coordination.  It can also be an invaluable tool for boys who want to excel in sports and it is a good outlet to expel their energy.

The benefits of dance don’t stop there.  Dance is a fun was to engage in exercise for any age.  Dancing is a great form of cardio, and it not only burns calories, but also enhances your overall well-being.  No matter what age or level of experience, dance is a good creative outlet.  It is proven that finding your creative energy increases the happiness in your everyday life.

The highly professional and creative staff at Chez Dance all have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and/or in a professional dance company.  The school offers five spacious and bright studios.  All are complete with state-of-the-art sound system, viewing windows and superior dance floors that prevent injury.  All levels, from beginning to advanced, ages 2 to adult, are now invited to take part in the school’s fall training.
