Best Things About Groove Nation:


You get immediate assistance and great communication by qualified office staff.   In many studios, the teacher or the studio owner conducts classes and does the administration. By trying to do two jobs at once, classes suffer or customer service is non-existent.

To have a good experience it is important to choose a studio that can assist you with details like schedule changes or upcoming events, even if a teacher is occupied in a class, from morning until evening.

Our studio has FRIENDLY qualified office staff available over the phone from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm, and a front desk person during regular class times so you can get immediate assistance.



Training at Groove Nation is much more involved then just teaching dance…
You may already know, many dance studios cut corners by using under-qualified teachers or high school dance students to teach classes. But parents today are more careful in making decisions, and looking to get the most VALUE out of their hard-earned dollar.

Although everyone agrees we offer UNSURPASSED training in REAL Hip Hop, we also offer EXCEPTIONAL training in ALL dance styles including: Contemporary and Lyrical Jazz,  Dance Technique, Ballet, Musical Theater, Break Dance, Tap or Funk Tap, Ballroom and more…!

From beginners to advanced, ages 2 through adult, Groove Nation instructors are highly qualified to teach their genre of dance; but what sets us apart is that they are also highly trained in working with kids.

Groove Nation is known for purposely building and cultivating confidence, leadership skills, strong character traits, creativity, AND we strive to use only CLEAN dance moves and music to keep it family friendly.



Walk through our doors, and you feel the ENERGY and EXCITEMENT in our Miami-Style Modern studio design! But it doesn’t stop there, our dancers enjoy the safety of our floating dance floor to absorb the shock, reduce fatigue, and prevent injury that can result from dancing on hard surfaces. Large viewing windows allow parents to see what kids are learning in class.
