Dance Creations, Inc. began on February 2, 1986 as The Dance Connection in a very small building in Bellingham, MA. The first year's registration had 29 students and our first performance was held 10 months later on December 7, 1986 at Woonsocket Senior High School. We continued our classes at the Bellingham location for one more year. In July of 1988 we moved to the Longley Building on Main Street in Woonsocket. At that time, we had 45 students. In July of 1992 we moved to our present location on Circle Street. At present, we have approximately 150 students participating in classes. Through the past 25 years, my students have participated in local events, master classes, and regional and national competitions winning many awards. I have students who participate in the dance programs in their high schools and colleges. Many of my students have continued their dance education in colleges, such as Dean College School of Dance, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Shenandoah University, Tampa University, and the University of Rhode Island. I also have students that have done pre-professional and professional work in such places as off-Broadway shows in New York City and Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I have students who have gone on to teach and choreograph for dance competition teams and dance companies in the mid-west and Florida and have also judged for national competitions throughout the U.S. Dance Creations, Inc. was chosen as the best school for dance education in the Blackstone Valley area in 2004, 2005, and 2013.
