OUR HISTORY - 71 Years and counting !
The Dance Connection’s origins date back to 1945 when the studio began as The Phil Grassia Dance Studio and Arts Center in Dover, New Jersey. In 1982, the studio changed hands and, under the direction of Lynn Kehlenbeck, soon became known as The Dance Connection. In 1999 The Dance Connection took over the Morris County Academy of Dance in Rockaway and relocated to the Boro Plaza on Route 46. In January of 2010 we moved into our brand new facility just 1/4 mile further east on Route 46.
Despite the changes over the years, we have never lost sight of our primary objective which is to offer quality dance instruction to children and adults at reasonable prices in a friendly and family-like atmosphere. We are proud to say that not only have we had several generations of dancers in a family dance with us, but we currently have some multi-generational families dancing with us right now! Grandparents, Parents and Grandchildren all dancing away -- sometimes all in the same recital!
You can rest assured that when you begin dancing with us you join a local dance tradition spanning seven decades now!
The Dance Connection wishes to thank all the wonderful families that have passed through its doors over the years and we look forward to many years to come. It is, and always has been, a pleasure teaching all of our students and watching them grow through dance !
