"Tap 'n Arts Dance Studio was my foundation in dance, and I could not be any happier to call this my hometown dance studio. It provided me with the motivation and creative freedom to develop into the dancer I am today, and I am so grateful for that! Getting my degree in dance and being a member of a professional dance company would never had happened if it were not for the incredible faculty and encouraging atmosphere at Tap 'n Arts. Definitely a 'must' studio for any one looking for a reputable dance studio in central PA!"

Tap 'n Arts has a lot to offer and provides great challenges in technique and styles to help dancers at all levels excel!"

Simply the best experience we could ever have hoped!"

We appreciate the opportunity to be involved with such a great studio!"
