“My daughter started at the age of 3 and simply fell in love with this dance studio. Now, six years later, this is her second home. It is where she learns hard work pays in dividends, where she has learned that dancing is about improving herself AND supporting her teammates. The teachers at ATB work hard to foster a love for the art of dance, all while creating a safe environment for their dancers to spread their imaginations and learn to fly.”
Our staff has amazing credentials and is passionate about teaching the art of dance to their students. We are also the only studio in the Quad Cities Area that offers you written feedback on your dancers' progression twice each year. Our 3 locations and NINE spacious studio rooms are equipped with state of the art sprung flooring and viewing windows for you to see your dancer and how the class is being taught. The family atmosphere has an inviting waiting room for you to wait for your dancer during class and socialize with other parents in the studio. With our small class sizes and flexible schedules, we're sure that you will find exactly what you are looking for.
We're dedicated to teaching our students not only the best technique in the Quad City Area, but also to teaching our students the benefits of teamwork, dedication, and commitment. Our teaching staff is highly qualified in their areas and committed to improving their art by furthering their knowledge in the dance arena.
Above the Barre is proud to be a member of Dance Master's of America, the leading education organization for dance teachers. We offer convenient daytime or evening classes, birthday and girl scout parties, and classes in many disciplines.
