Dancer’s Gallery

Cooper City, FL

Dancer’s Gallery has been providing quality dance instruction for over 20 years. We teach various styles to students of all ages, beginning at age two. Our 10,000 sq ft facility includes two stories of dance rooms, a full service cafe, family living and dining area, and our very own black box theater for intimate performances. Once you’re here, you’ll feel at home.

Beyond our class schedule, we offer a unique After School Arts program. Students in this program are picked up from local schools, assisted with homework, provided a specialty track of dance classes and offered many performance opportunities throughout the year. We run this program in accordance to the Broward County Schools Calendar. However, day camps will be offered on days off of school as well as winter and spring break.

We hold both CAST company and Hip Hop Company. Our company dancers are selected by audition at the beginning of fall. CAST Company dancers are required to take ballet, tap, jazz, acro, contemporary, and choreography/technique. While, Hip Hop Company dancers take Hip Hop technique and choreography. These dancers learn from some of the best choreographers, participate in competitions, perform at local venues, perform on board one of Royal Carribean’s cruise ships, and most importantly, learn valuable lessons of perseverance, discipline, teamwork, dedication and confidence.

              • Dancer’s Gallery is a place I consider my childhood and where I grew up. Christie Stark is the most dedicated and welcoming Dance teacher and studio owner I could ever imagine. I looked up to her each and every day and considered her my role model as well as the rest of the dance teachers there. Along the way I made some lifetime friends and memories I will never forget. Dancer’s Gallery will forever be in my heart and is the best place for anyone to find their passion in dance. It goes way beyond just a dance studio. It becomes a second home. XOXO

              • I want to give a HUUUUUGE shoutout to Dancers Gallery on Flamingo near Sterling!! I’m going crazy with just just two kids while school is closed, but they opened their doors to all kids today in our community for a free Irma Relief Day Camp and discounted prices the rest of the week until school resumes.

                It was our first time there, and I can’t say enough good things about how well organized it was as well as how kind all the staff were. It’s a HUGE studio run by people with even HUGER hearts.

              • Dancer’s Gallery was heaven on earth for my daughter. She danced there from the age of 3 until she was 14 years old. The teachers are wonderful. The atmosphere makes you feel comfortable to drop your child off at class and run an errand. My daughter would live there if she could! Ms. Christie was not only one of her instructors she became family. I feel privileged that my daughter had the chance to attend! Dancer’s Gallery helped make my daughter the confident young lady she is today.

              • My daughter has been growing up with Dancer’s Gallery since she was 3. She now teaches the next generation of artists. Her career in the arts flourished into: Dancing, Acting, Singing, Modeling, a Marlins Mermaid, Choreography, and has featured as a dancer in the movie “Rock of Ages”. I attribute her talented skills to the training, discipline and opportunities offered in this wonderful environment.

              • “ Dancer’s Gallery is the best dance studio around. Their facility is like no other and they offer a huge variety of performing arts for children and adults. Each instructor brings their own style and offer a lot of freedom of expression while focusing on technique. I love it there and love the fact that my two boys and daughter can share the experience of dancing at Dancer’s Gallery. BRAVO! ”
