Just want to THANK MY DM FAMILY for all of the LOVE & SUPPORT these last couple of weeks, and also THANK YOU for the upcoming couple of weeks!! You all have for sure taken permanent places in my HEART! XO “My HEART Lifted My FEET & I DANCED”
Madeline had so much fun this year. She has been carrying her trophy with her everywhere since the recital yesterday. She is so proud of it! She talks about it constantly!
Pre-rehearsal excitement! #DanceMovesCHS
We LOVED Laureen’s class on Tuesdays at the children’s museum! So sad to hear it’s cancelled. My daughter Ivy misses it!!!!
We are ready to start in 3 days! Big sister already had hers so we just needed to get her ready. She didn't want to take her leotard off because she thought she was supposed to start ballet right then. Was a little disappointed when i told her 5 more days (we got it a couple of days ago)

A well established dance studio on James Island and serving schools across Charleston, we are dedicated to ensuring a nurturing and educational environment for your dancer.

We promote positive body image and self confidence while educating our students. Dance Moves of Charleston was founded in 2002 by Jessica Beran. Her vision was to have a studio that offered formal technical training while offering a nurturing family atmosphere. Our mission is to be a dance studio that fosters each dancer’s self-esteem through the knowledge and appreciation for dance as a professional form of art and provides educational opportunities for our students to explore dance and performance.

Two of our very own staff, Ms Maddie P and Ms Leslie have choreographed pieces for CofC's Fall concert, which can be viewed on demand starting 10/25! We are so very proud to have such amazing and talented teachers here at Dance Moves!

Read here for more info on the concert:
dance, deconstructed

Artistic Director Gretchen McLaine

Necessity breeds creativity, and this pandemic has allowed our choreographers to explore creative new paths to building a performance which challenges the dancers in unexpected ways. This year's fall concert, dance, deconstructed, promises to offer the audience exciting choreography and spectacular dancing through a digital format. Artists explore deconstructing the idea of performance and choreographic processes as the current pandemic pushes a re-evaluation of how we approach dance.

October 25th - November 1st - This production is Video on Demand

TICKETS - $18 (Groups of 3 or more), $8 (Adults, Military & Seniors), $5 (CofC Faculty, Staff & Students), $5 (18 and under)
