Online Education and Outreach

Tanner Dance is committed to providing quality education and opportunity for dance for our community. This space will serve as our repository for videos, lessons and other activities we want to share with everyone, as we all work together towards teaching dance at a distance. We also have a site where we are sharing selected past performances for free, you can see those here. We also share updates and fun challenges on Instagram and Facebook.

Stay healthy and safe

What our patrons have to say

“Thank you for putting together this class for our children. Abigail was so excited that she took the iPad into her room, danced her heart out and mom got 30 minutes to work. I appreciate all that you and the other teachers are doing to help out during this crazy time!”
