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.
Almost two years ago, a bright eyed, beautiful smiled young lady joined our dance family! Fearless and determined took us all by storm with her vivacious energy and contagious smile. Her hard work and determination made her a cut above so many. She has forever changed our lives, and left her mark deep within our hearts. Words cannot express the sadness we feel for our loss. Heaven gained a perfect Angel! You will be forever missed! Till we meet again in Heaven, we love you!!!
This month we are shining the spotlight on Bella Laukkanen. At the end of July, we received the heartbreaking news, that our beautiful Bella had passed.
Bella started dancing with us a little under two years ago, but she quickly became an integral part of our family. She started out with only a few classes, but couldn't get enough. After only a season or two, she had signed up for just about every class she could AND joined our competition team.
It's no surprise that Bella made many close friends at the studio. She had a contagious smile that never seemed to leave her face and filled each room she was in with joy, laughter and light.
Here are some thoughts from our teachers at DDS:
Bella. The very first thing I ever saw of her was her smile. She waltzed into competition auditions with the most beautiful smile. She hadn’t been dancing long, but rarely does a dancer come along with a smile like that. It can only be described as pure joy. She loved to dance. She made everyone around her feel that love with her smile. - Ms. Kristen
Bella’s love of dance will shine on forever. She was such a bright light at dixon dance studio. Her smile, kind heart, and enthusiasm is something that I will remember most. Some people will touch your life for a brief moment, but will leave an imprint for a lifetime. Rest In Peace sweet Bella. - Ms. Staci
Sweet, kind and beautiful Bella... she was one of the most hard working of my students and definitely the most improved. She was always smiling and happy to be in class. It was a pleasure to be her teacher and I will miss her very very much. - Ms. Kiana
There are so many wonderful things I can say about Bella. She was the most fierce and fearless dancer I’ve ever known. Always willing to emerge herself in any genre of dance, even if she wasn’t confident in her abilities. I will truly miss her and her never ending smile that could brighten my day. She reignited a passion of teaching in me. She reminded me why I love what I do. I am eternally grateful to have had that extra special time she brought to my life. Love you and will miss you forever. -Ms. Amy
I had the pleasure and great joy of teaching Bella in TWO of my contemporary classes. One class just wasn’t enough for her. She had fallen in love with dance and just wanted to get better. I am so grateful for the time I had with her and I don’t think there was ever a day she didn’t make me laugh. Her genuine spirit, fierce friendship, and never ending kindness touched us all and I know I will never forget it. -Ms. Morgan
We love you Bella and will miss you always.
