Keyport Holiday Celebration, December 2017



Holiday EEDS wear Orders will arrive gift wrapped in the studio the WEEK PRIOR to Holiday Break. Please note upcoming email for pick up while your dancer is in class.

Our facility is equipped with suspended Marley floors and many eco friendly elements. We are proud to be a paper free studio and encourage our families to make payments and order EEDS dance wear from the comfort of their homes or at their convenience of their smartphones.

The focus at Essential Elements Dance Studio remains on the technical building blocks to proper dance training by adding elements to our students' education as their bodies physically mature and their dance vocabulary grows.  We strive to ensure the longevity of both their interest in dance classes and the health of their developing instrument.

We look forward to sharing our passion with the next generation of expressive movers. EEDS will again bring the community a series of Master Classes throughout the 2017-2018 season.  It is our goal to create a cooperative learning environment within our area's student dance companies and surrounding studios, through various styles of dance and respected artists.
