Our mission at Dixon Dance Studio is to provide students with quality dance instruction while providing a fun, safe, and positive environment. At Dixon Dance Studio, we pride ourselves on being non-competitve. We believe there is a significant difference between professional dance training and competitive dance training. Our dancers are technically trained in all facets of dance and are unique in their own individual style. The training we provide at Dixon Dance Studio allows for endless possibilities in the professional world of dance.
Dixon Dance Studio opened it's doors in November of 2000. Amy and Staci Forrest began dancing at a very young age, training in all styles of dance. It was their Grandmas wish to see them share their love of dance with everyone, nothing made her more proud. With the help of their parents Gracion and Ava Forrest, their Grandmas dream came to life and Dixon Dance Studio was born.
We offer several genres of dance including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Hip Hop, Modern/Contemporary and Acro Jazz. Check out the schedule tab for more information. Our first class is always free and any Pre-Ballet class, Tap/Jazz Combo class or A level classes are our entry level classes. We continually assess our students and make sure they are in the most appropriate class for their age and skill level.

Winter Showcase is a great way for your little dancer to show off what they have been learning in class. This is a low key performance that we hold at Dixon High School. Registration forms are available at the front desk. You don't want to miss out.
This month, we are shining the spotlight on 10-year-old Ximena Perea! Ximena is a 5th grader at Tremont Elementary. When asked what she loves about school, she said, “Everything, just learning is fun.”
Ximena has been dancing at Dixon Dance Studio for six years! She was inspired to start dancing after watching a video of the ballet Swan Lake on YouTube. “I wanted to be just like those ballet dancers,” she said.
When asked about her favorite dance memory, she said, “This last competition season winning First Place for Fabulous at Spotlight Dance Competition with my best friends: Diamond Sister”. Ximena says that her best friends at the studio are, “Dylanne, Addi, Addison. What I like about them is that they are really helpful, we always talk and have fun together.”
Ximena’s future goals are to be a dance teacher and go to college.
Ms. Morgan says, “Ximena is such a little spark plug! She is always so excited for class and her smile is infectious. I always love watching her perform because it is so obvious how much she LOVES it.”
When asked about her advice for her fellow dancers, she said, “Have fun when you dance. Do your best every time and don’t forget to smile!”
Congratulations to Ximena for being this month’s Spotlight Dancer!
