The Why behind our Name;
Pegasus Dance Studios name was chosen from the Mythological winged horse Pegasus. A horse in full flight, with his wings reaching upwards and legs galloping through the air, as the inspiration for our studio. It has become a special place for children to explore and discover the magic of the Arts through dance. As we encourage creativity and creative thinking in our children we know that the world needs new ideas and innovation for a brighter future. Growing joyfully creative and confident children is the way and our why.
Through our family first culture we provide lessons, skills and lasting relationships that give lifetime value,
built on trust, respect, kindness, growth, and excellence.
Let Pegasus be the place to find inspiration for dreams to take Flight!
Pegasus Dance Studios is a community for creative children discovering and developing confidence, connection, and joy through dance and the arts. We appreciate you and thank you for joining us this season!
We hope you will join us!!

Looking towards a New Season of Growth, Inspiring and Nurturing our Children to be happy and confident, but first we are finishing this season strong!
At this time of year and with all the things that take up space in our minds, for our families and our life we are all a little more tired. This is the first full season without the shutdowns and interruptions of our lives from the last few years and we are wanting to get to the finish line, so we can rest and breathe.
But as we told ourselves and our children over the past few years we are resilient, strong and we can do and finish what we started. We are doing it! Congratulations, we see you doing hard things!! At Pegasus Dance Studio we are also doing just that! We are continuing to focus on the simple, most basic things that we need as a culture, as parents, as people and a community. The life lessons that we learn from showing up, day to day and keeping our commitments are just one of the lessons we learn in the dance studio.
I’m sure you are familiar with the sign in our front window and the quote of Misty Lown, who as my mentor and coach (yes, we all need a little help) says, ‘We don't teach kids to be great dancers, we teach dance to make great kids’.
Our goal is to nurture happy and confident children as we grow leaders of tomorrow. We believe we can do that best by multi-age learning. Our classes are designed as a two year study, encouraging cooperation, developing strong social and collaboration skills.
Multi- age learning gives potential for being a learner (year one) and a leader (year two) by enhancing community, non-competitive learning skills and increasing leadership skills. Dancers build confidence and technique solidified by consistent nurturing of skills, not by age. We focus on discovery and the joy of learning, working at a pace that focuses on individual goals and progress.
We are excited to plan for the new fall season and finish this season strong with our Dances of Nature Spring Showcase. We continue to focus on the basic core values that our studio as a community inspires for our faculty, staff and students. We are your parenting partners and as educators we use our passion for the Arts as a vehicle to teach these simple values in everything we do and everything we encourage in your children. These simple but not always easy Core Values, hangs in a poster in every studio room and reminds us above all else;
Trust in the process with focus and consistency. Discover the small changes that happen over time, often without much notice. Trust and Celebrate the journey.
Respect yourself, the opportunities and the people who surround you and help us along our journey. You must give respect to receive respect.
Above all else choose kindness. Treat each other, your environment and the world around you with kindness.
We appreciate you and thank you for being a part of our Pegasus Dance Studio Community
