Larkin Dance Studio was founded in 1950 by Shirley Larkin and is a family-owned dance studio. They offer a variety of dance classes, including hip hop, ballet, contemporary, and tap. They have recreational classes as well as a more stringent schedule for those who wish to compete regionally and nationally. They accept anyone from age three to adult and at any skill level. Because they believe in individualized attention, they limit the classes, usually between 12 - 15 students. They have an annual end-of-the-year recital so every student can show off what they have learned. They have ten competition lines including two adult ones; they win top honors whenever they compete. Their passion for dance shines through whatever they do.
