Quick glance at 2017/2018 schedule


As part of our teaching program you can expect:

1. Responsible training with caring, skilled, professional instructors, faculty & assistants.

2. A fun, encouraging studio environment with personalized challenges for individual growth.

3. Family approved lyrics, clothing and music selections.

4. An atmosphere of mutual respect and proven mentoring programs.

We are a studio that teaches ballet. We use and teach dance vocabulary & technique. Technique is very important in learning ballet.  Dancers are students. We come to ballet class to learn how to dance and not just to be in a bunch of dances/choreography. We do provide the opportunity for performance experience.

Studio History: The move and name change from MainStreet Dance to Hosanna Dance happened in 2011 during the year of the Missouri River flooding. We moved out of the Ft Pierre studio May 27, 2011, the day before having two performances of Peter Pan. A lot of our dancers were tired from sandbagging. The following year (2011/2012) we held classes at the local YMCA. We moved into our the studio on Pleasant in Pierre, May/June of 2012. We are currently in the process of moving to a larger location at 119 N Deadwood St in Ft Pierre.
