The Dancer’s School



Welcome to The Dancer’s School!

Established in 1980, the DS is known for its commitment to dance education in Rutherford County.  We value our traditions and yet always endeavor to introduce innovation and imagination into our teaching techniques and dance productions.

Our class atmospheres are a unique combination of fun, challenge, and discipline at all age and experience levels.  Our stellar faculty combines to bring more that 100 years of dance teaching experience along with a broad range of real world performance experience on international pop star tours, prestigious ballet productions, and nationally known dance intensives and workshops.

The DS is committed to families and offers competitive fees, flexible schedules, local recital venues, and appropriate costuming and music (edited for objectionable content).

Our facility consists of three fully equipped studios and a music editing studio.  Jordan Tate, Assistant Director, provides music editing, mixing, and production services for the DS and other outside clients including school dance teams and other dance studios.

We look forward to meeting and getting to know your family.  The coming dance season is sure to bring new and memorable dance experiences.

Jimmi Lou Tate

Director, Owner
