About Us


Welcome to The Floor Dance Company! THE FLOOR is a dance studio located in the city of Rochester, NY. THE FLOOR has been designed to challenge the beginner – advanced dancer ages 2 and up. We offer technique classes in ballet, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, tap, hip-hop and tumbling, as well as drop-in classes for the beginner – advanced teen and adult dancers. Dancers at THE FLOOR will experience a very structured, yet positive and encouraging class setting. Each student will be challenged to be the best dancer they can be. All teen technique classes are taught separately from performance classes, to ensure each dancer’s needs are met. Dancers interested in performance and competition opportunities can audition to join The Floor Performance Company. ALL students have the opportunity to perform at THE FLOOR  Spring Dance Concert in June. 

Our mission at THE FLOOR is to inspire our dancers to be creative, be confident and strive to succeed. Our main goal is to have fun, while pushing our students to dance outside of the lines; to  do more than just repeat or perfect learned choreography for performance. This is about creating an environment where students feel like they are being pushed beyond their limits, all in an encouraging atmosphere, making lifelong friends, and building self-confidence.

We pride ourselves on staying involved in the community by supporting and collaborating with incredible local organizations such as Endless Highway, The Center for Youth, and the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester.
