From pre-ballet to adult tap, we offer classes for every age group and every skill level.
Easy, online registration makes it fast to sign up your child for dance classes
It's the dedication and talent of our teachers, staff and assistants that makes us great.
Little girls take dance for many reasons- friends and fun being at the top of their list. But as teachers and parents, we know dance teaches us so much more. It teaches imagination, strength, coordination and grace.
More importantly, it builds confidence, teaches them to be part of a team, and to work with others to create. It teaches responsibility and takes dedication.
Dance training is life training.
Ballet and Tap combination classes are one hour weekly. The basics of ballet as well as rhythm and tap skills are taught.
Age 5-10 years

2nd Grade & up
Our mission is to provide an enriching artistic experience for every unique child. Our school is a place where students can explore movement, physicality, and expression in a FUN and supportive learning environment.
We recognize every student is different. We strive for every child to feel validated in their uniqueness, creativity, and talent
Dance is both physical and expressive, making it uniquely suited for children. Students use their energy and their natural enthusiasm to express themselves.
Our studio is the perfect place for a young child to take their very first dance class in a caring and professional environment... as well as for the more serious dancer to receive top-notch training.
We were voted by the Roanoke Regional Chamber of Commerce as the area's "Small Business of The Year" and have earned an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.

"Ardell Stone School of Dancing was my home away from home for 15 years! I could not have asked for a better place to help me become who I am while helping me grow in what I love to do...dancing!! The instructors are so kind, loving and helpful. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to dance at such an incredible studio!"
Dance taught me discipline. It taught me how to set goals, how to achieve them, how to accomplish them. It also taught me how to take constructive criticism and turn it into something positive.
It's easy to join and dance makes a positive difference in your child's life.
Yes, dancing is fun. But dance classes also teach your child ideas they can use for life; teamwork, confidence, fitness, discipline, and joy. That's why we say "dance lessons are life lessons".
