Founded in 1929 by Earle and Dorothy Cobb, the Earle Cobb Dance Studio started with little more than a handful of students and a small, second-floor studio over a grocery store on the corner of North Flores and Woodlawn. Since then, the studio has grown to a student body numbering in the hundreds and has produced an impressive roster of professional dancers and instructors.
Through it all, from the Charleston step of its Jazz Age beginnings to today’s lively hip hop, and the excitement of tap and jazz, the studio has made sure that dance is—above all else—fun. More than anything, the Earle Cobb Dance Studio is about the joy of dancing—an art that, when taught with the care it deserves, naturally instills poise, grace, strength and self-assurance in its young students.
And even though the studio has grown considerably since we first opened our doors, we still carefully maintain the size of each and every class to ensure an optimal student-teacher ratio. Even now, pre-school classes are limited to 10 to 12 students and beginner and intermediate dance classes are limited to 12 to 16 students, respectively, with an instructor and assistant assigned to each class.
Attention to detail and a kind, enthusiastic attitude are just some of the reasons why the Earle Cobb Dance Studio has lasted through three generations of dancers.
Our philosophy has always been - “Smile and have fun!” and we’re still saying it to this day.
