Do you LOVE to dance? Do you feel your most confident and ALIVE when you're dancing? Do you MISS dancing? If yes, Powerhouse Dance is for you.

The ultimate goal of Powerhouse is to give you the outlet and opportunity to express yourself through a fun, challenging dance routine with a community of dancers, leaving you feeling strong and inspired. If you are an experienced dancer, you will leave class feeling on FIRE. If you are a newer dancer, you will feel empowered that you stepped out of your comfort zone and had fun all while getting a workout!

Every week we have a different choreographer teach us, so you will get a variety of styles. You will find a wide mix of dancers in class: from newbies to professionals, to dancers who haven’t taken a class in years. This is the beauty of Powerhouse - all are welcomed! Powerhouse is not a place of judgement, so you can let loose without worrying or comparing yourself to others. Do you!
