What We're about
405 Dance Company proudly strives to create a safe, open and encouraging environment for all students! We groom each student to have confidence in their abilities while setting constructive goals and implementing the appropriate training to meet those goals effectively. We make extraordinary efforts for our students to be all around better individuals and team members. The students begin their season with team building classes and anti-bullying policy awareness. Our company is different from other studios in that we approach dance training through a 10 month all-inclusive curriculum that includes, but is not limited to: Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Acrobatics, Yoga, Barre/Strength Training, Injury Prevention, and starting this year, Ballroom! Bottom line; if a child wants to seriously pursue a career in the performing arts, we want to help them achieve that goal. We also provide recreational programs as well as open classes for adults!
Another passion we commit to throughout the year is giving back to our community. 405 Dance Company members are dedicated to philanthropic work. Our Spring Showcase benefits a local non-profit or family in need.
We feel that making our students aware of how they can give back by using their blessings and talents to bring awareness and funding to their fellow students in our community, gives them more drive to stay focused in school and at the studio. They end each season with a great sense of accomplishment and new life skills, as well as an appreciation and respect for their art.
In 2014, we started as a small, private training and consulting dance studio for local competitive dancers who were seeking training that would safely and consistently push them further than their current level. In the Fall of 2014, we had several courses and 3 students who were ready to commit to this new program! By the Spring of 2015, we grew to 8 students…. A slow start but we felt that once we had completed our 1st season, we would have established our reputation as one of the most demanding training programs in our community with incredible results from our athletes. In the Fall of 2015, the company enrollment quadrupled in size! The word was out, and our doors were wide open!
In our 2015-2016 season, we gained a reputation for creating opportunities for our dancers to be more involved in the Norman community through philanthropic work, as well as executing over 7 award winning competitive numbers. In our 3rd season (2016-2017), we exceeded enrollment with 59 students and our outside philanthropic performance opportunities continued to grow.
Our upcoming season will be full of additional opportunities and incredible growth starting with our new location! We have outgrown our previous studio and are expanding to support all of our exciting new programs. Come join us!
