The Encore Team

We would be nothing without our staff. From our instructors and choreographers to our desk and support staff, our team is family and our family keeps Encore Dance Center running! The dedication and commitment of our team through the year is remarkable and unmatched. Their love of dance shines through and radiates to our students as they develop their skills.
