Gotta Dance Studio

Our Approach

Our studio feels that every student should have the opportunity to succeed!  Whether they chose to enroll in our recreational classes, join our competition team or just jump in to one of the open classes, everyone is instructed and encouraged to do the best they can and continuously improve.  Ask our current students and parents how feel about being in our family!

Truly a place where their dancing dreams begin!

Our Story

Every business has a beginning, and ours started seventeen years ago.  We have been involved in the New Bedford community ever since we opened our doors.  No matter if you enroll in our recreational classes, join our competition team or even jump in to our open sessions, every student is instructed and encouraged to do their best and continuously improve.

Meet the Team

Write something about the people who make your business go or your philosophy behind customer service.
Why? Because people want to know who they're doing business with. It's a human thing.
