Hello!

The Earle Cobb Dance Studio is approaching an incredible milestone; we are celebrating our 95thAnniversary!  We are the oldest continuously running family-owned dance studio in the United States!  

The reunion/recital weekend will be bringing together past and present dancers and teachers who have contributed to the magic of the studio over the years.  It is time to reconnect with dance friends, ‘tap’ into memories and celebrate the remarkable journey that made us who we are today.  Mark your calendar, dust off those dancing shoes and get ready for the fun.
