Progressive Dance Studio is committed first and foremost to fostering the love of dance and the performing arts in our students. We are passionate about dance, the performing arts and education in Bergen County. Progressive Dance Studio’s primary focus is developing each student’s talents by nurturing their individual abilities. Our goal is to instill self confidence and self esteem as well as an understanding and appreciation for dance that each student can carry throughout their lives, no matter what profession they may choose. We believe in providing the highest quality of professional instruction in a safe and creative no-competitive environment.
From our humble beginnings as a one-room ballet studio to a state-of-the art dance education institution, over the past 42 years Progressive Dance Studio has grown into one of the top dance studios in the tri-state area. Our award winning Synergy Dance company competes against some of the best dancers on the East Coast. We offer a wide array of classes in all the major forms of dance; Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Acro as well as Adult Classes for those in our community. Our Tots in Tutus and Creative Movement programs for 3, 4 and 5 years olds are the perfect introduction your dancer to be!
In 2011 Progressive Dance Studio established the Synergy Dance Company (SDC), a series of Dance Companies that participate in Dance Competitions and Conventions. Synergy Dance Company members receive an opportunity to both compete against some of the top dancers on the East Coast, and to be taught by master teachers in their dance form. Over the last seven years, PDS has won numerous awards for being one of the Top Dance Studios in New Jersey and throughout the Tri-State Region, including: VIP Dance Competition 2018 – Best Dance Studio, Inferno Dance Competition 2017 – Dance Regional Championship, and StarQuest 2016 – 5 Platinum Awards & 4 Special Awards, to name a few.
