ABOUT

The Studio

World of Dance opened its doors October 1st 2001. The first class was an open hip-hop class and the music hasn’t stopped since. The studio began with fourteen registered students and now boasts a program with almost two hundred weekly dancers. The program primarily focuses on Hip-Hop, Jazz & Tap with the fundamentals of Ballet, directed by Regina C. Marcucci

Each week we ensure the classes learn new choreography and terminology building from the week before. Our program is aggressive and highly structured, but has proven to be successful in keeping our dancers interested all while maintaining a fun atmosphere. We encourage our students to dance anywhere and everywhere, and to experience all styles and forms of movement.

​World of Dance proudly boasts several Grand Champion titles, choreography awards, Nationally ranked teams, US Finals Champions teams (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017) and a newly Bid Worlds Team (2015) with their All-Star Hip-Hop teams.
