The Blue Ridge Studio for the Performing Arts opened its doors in September of 1991, in a tiny store front on Main Street in Berryville, with roughly 500 square feet of dancing space, a closet for an office and room for 8 chairs in the waiting room. Over the years, the Studio has grown and changed, but it has maintained its commitment to providing professional instruction for children and adults in Clarke County, Frederick County, Winchester, Loudoun County and Jefferson County.
Located in Berryville, Virginia, The Blue Ridge Studio is committed to providing a joyful, exciting dance experience for all of our students. We keep our classes small, intentionally, because we believe that our students benefit from individual, personal attention. Although our main objective at The Studio is to teach traditional technique, we also feel a responsibility to educate our students in a wide variety of dance forms, styles, and choreography.
The Blue Ridge Studio is a non-profit organization, dedicated to the concept that all children deserve the opportunity to explore the world of dance, regardless of their ability to pay tuition. The abilities and talents that children possess are as unique as the children themselves. Our primary goal is to help our students discover and cherish their natural gifts. By encouraging self discipline and a strong work ethic, we teach our students how to reach their goals with poise and confidence.
As a non-profit organization that offers scholarships to numerous families, we rely on the generous support of our friends and families to keep our performing arts education program a vital part of the community.
