Back to school season is always an exciting time of the year— and no, it’s not just because pumpkin spice lattes come back into rotation. 

The end of the summer is the best time to get back into a weekly routine and dive back into the fun after-school extracurricular activities that keep your kids active, disciplined, and engaged with their peers. 

Considering dance classes as an option this year? Whether your child has been dancing since they could walk or are interested in putting on ballet, tap, or jazz shoes for the very first time, here’s eight reasons Dance Spectrum is a top option when it comes to choosing a dance studio for your child: 


1. A Woman-Owned Business

Originally opened back in 1979, Dance Spectrum has been a female-owned and operated local business for over 40 years.

After multiple locations, renovations, and more, Dance Spectrum is currently located at 4705 Transit Road in Depew, where founder and CEO Patty Neal and the rest of the Dance Spectrum staff teach a wide variety of dance types to individuals of all age ranges and experience levels.

2. Everyone is Welcome

Even if you’ve never stepped foot into a dance studio in your entire life, you’re welcome at Dance Spectrum! Dance classes of all kinds are available for all age ranges and experience levels among three different program tracks, as the Dance Spectrum staff is highly trained and able to teach everyone, from 18-month olds to adults of all ages. 

3. Continued Education is a Priority

To keep themselves sharp, the Dance Spectrum faculty members are constantly educating and bettering themselves. 

Did you know: Dance Spectrum has two teachers with their Doctorate of Physical Therapy, a Mental Health Counselor, a teacher’s aid specializing in working with kids with special needs, five instructors trained in Progressive Ballet Technique, and others who are trained in Acrobatic Arts. Pretty impressive, right?

4. Most Staff and Faculty are DS Alumni

What’s even better? The majority of Dance Spectrum teachers have danced at DS themselves! From the instructors themselves to the administrative directors, everyone at Dance Spectrum is truly a family.  

5. New State-of-the-Art Facility

New for this year: Dance Spectrum just recently opened back up the doors of their facility to welcome dancers back for the season. With a brand new look and helpful technology to help dancers keep up their training remotely, Dance Spectrum has everything you or the dancer in your life needs to succeed!

6. Local Donations Every Month of the Season

Dance Spectrum is proud to give back to their local community by choosing a WNY charity or organization to give back to every month of their 32-week season. In the past, the Dance Spectrum team has donated to places like the Tri-Community Food Pantry, Corner Stone Manor, Patricia Allen Fund, Code Blue Buffalo, and more.

8. Assistant & Student Teacher Program

Another great way to nurture and mold your child’s passion for dance is by encouraging them to take part in Dance Spectrum’s assistant and student teacher program! Not only will your child be mentored by Dance Spectrum’s faculty and staff, but they’ll have the opportunity to serve as a peer mentor and role model both in and out of the classroom.
