Designed 2 Dance is the best kept secret on Houston's Southside.

Training Students Ages 3-17 in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Gymnastics, and Theater Arts.

We have highly qualified professionally trained instructors.

We spend quality time with our students and keep our classes small and intimate.

D2D Has Two Programs

Dance Team

(Ages 5-17)

D2D dance team trains 2-3 days a week. They are required to take Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Leaps & Turns, Strength & Conditioning, Contemporary, and Theater Arts.

The team candidates are required to train in the summer and audition during our dance camp series.

The team also performs 1-2 times a month as well as compete in 1-2 dance competitions a year.

Students on the team sacrifice their time, keep up their grades, and have outstanding behavior in and out the dance studio.

Recreational Dancers

(Ages 4-15)

Students that enroll to take classes only with no commitment to the team. New students may enroll from September to February.

All recreational dancers take classes on Mondays only:
