Studio owners, Patricia McCarthy and Kristyn Prial, are former teachers of The Walter Schalk School of Dance. We strive to continue to pass on the gift of dance and community that Walter gave to each of us. Our goal is to promote a non-competitive, inclusive environment for exploration of healthy movement through Dance and to provide a platform for performance. We believe that the end result will promote strength of character, confidence and poise in each of our dancers.
Some of us have grown up in the Walter Schalk School of Dance and have benefitted from Walter’s strong work ethic, attention to detail and his knack for teaching dance in a simple and understandable manner. Others of us come from various other dance backgrounds including Ballet, Contemporary, Modern, Hip Hop, Musical Theater and Fitness. We all come from different professional backgrounds and lend our particular talents to the kids in the studio. The kids benefit not only from our being students and teachers of dance but also from our being Moms, Professional Dancers, School Teachers, Nurses, Business Professionals, Entrepreneurs and good friends. We have fun together teaching your kids!
