Not only are we committed to training students for a professional career in dance, but also dedicated to the development of the recreational dancer simply here for the enjoyment and love of the art form. From the finest classical ballet, to the hippest contemporary movement, dance enhances the lives of all people and is an intergral part in the development of every child. Variations is a place where healthy bodies and healthy attitudes are built.

Variations Junior and Senior dance companies perform annually with the Long Island Dance Consortium, Heckscher Park Summer Arts Festival, Nassau County Fair, Gurwin and Carillon Nursing Homes. We are committed to promoting dance and nurturing the artistic development of our community.
