We have a lot to offer!

Our classes are fun and informative, and at CRETE'S DANCE COMPANY students are offered a variety of dance programs, divided into classes by ability level. Students receive personalized attention in a well-rounded, age appropriate, safe program featuring a fun atmosphere while they learn the art of dance. Students are encouraged to develop skill building techniques while developing their own personal growth, self-esteem, discipline and creativity. Our studio is equipped with all the great stuff that makes learning the art of dance a lot of fun. We
have great teachers, a waiting room/lobby area, changing room, sound system, mirrors in two large
teaching rooms, and tons of creativity. We proudly display photos of our students, as well as trophies
and special awards! To top it off, local artists Geoff & Echo Easton hand-painted beautiful Degas murals!!

CRETE'S DANCE COMPANY has earned a strong reputation in Crete and surrounding
communities by proving that talent and experience are the best foundations for a successful studio.
Great teachers and a safe program are an important part of our success. Each year students, their families and friends, take part and enjoy the much anticipated Annual
Recital Production
showcasing what the students have learned the past year. What fun!

Every year at CRETE'S DANCE COMPANY proves to be just as exciting as the last, and our
return rate of students tells us we're doing it right. Our studio and programs are promoted in
newspapers, flyers, and most of all by the word-of-mouth from happy students.

Give us a call, or e-mail us, and we'll be happy to answer any questions you have!
