    DBL STUDIO

    Located at 130 Fort Path Road #5 in Madison, CT, the Dance By Leslie is a 900 square foot studio. Our dance surface is a custom-built, SPRUNG (cushioned), oak dance floor, specifically designed to provide a high quality and safe experience. One entire wall is lined with full-length mirrors while the other three walls have dance barres. There is a waiting room with a Dutch door and a viewing window, to give a feeling of openness. In addition, there is a changing room and bathroom in the back.


    DBL DATES


    We offer two 17-week sessions, one in the Fall and one in the Spring.

    Fall classes in 2020 will run from September 14th through late-January, 2021.

    The BRING A FRIEND WEEKS in the fall will still take place,
    we just don't know when yet due to Covid-19.

    The Spring Semester began on February 1st, 2021
    and runs through June 7th, 2021.

    Our Dance Show will take place on June 5th in 2021,
    assuming Covid-19 allows us to do so.

    For other important dates please see our Calendar page.

    During the Summer months, we offer several Camp options.
    Students can attend one or all of them.


    OUR DANCE SHOW

    Once a year, at the end of our spring semester, we perform our DBL Dance Show. Our 2019 Show, "The Greatest Show," was a huge success on June 1st. This past year has been extremely unique because of Covid-19's devestating effect on all of us. We hope that we can return to our regular style of dance show in the Spring of 2021. Each show provides an opportunity for the individual classes to dance for friends and family within the structure of a themed performance. In past years we have done shows that were loosely knitted around the ideas of “Grease,” “Peter Pan,” “A Chorus Line,” "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" "La La Land" and many others. DBL has been doing these highly successful shows, one way or another, for 37 years.

    PRIVATE CLASSES

    Private, semi-private (2 students) and tri-private (3 students) classes are offered for one half an hour (1/2 hour) sessions.

    Private classes can be scheduled with each instructor and will be a 17-week semester.

    DANCE ATTIRE

    Dance clothes and shoes are always required but a dance “uniform” is not. Any color dance clothes are acceptable. NO JEANS, not even to hip-hop class. We believe that for our young students, the more beautiful they look, the better they dance.

    We have tutus to borrow for ballet classes. Please return them to the changing room at the end of class. Thank you.

    We have shoes to borrow, if you want to try a class, or if you forget your shoes. Please return them to our shoebox after the class. Thank you.
