The Dance Factory is a vibrant, inclusive dance studio conveniently located in downtown Springfield next to the town library. Founded in 1984 by Susan Hagan and currently owned by Kate DeRosia, the studio boasts four experienced teachers and offers classes in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, hip hop, tap, and creative movement for preschoolers through adults. Emphasis is on quality technical training while encouraging a love and passion for movement.
Performances include an annual spring recital in May for all students as well as December performances of The Nutcracker, a fundraiser for arts programs in public schools that has contributed over twenty thousand dollars to such programs. Teachers Kate DeRosia, Ashley Hensel-Browning, Dana Blake, and Gretchen Abendschein thoroughly enjoy dancing with you and your little ones during the school year and summer sessions.
