At Anita’s Studio of Dance & Theatre Arts we strive to bring out the best dancer in each individual student. Our faculty shares their love of dance, and imparts their knowledge and experience with all of our students regardless of level. Our ultimate goal is for students to have fun while they are learning and to have an overall positive experience with dance. We, who are members of the dance education community, seek to live lives of good character. We believe that good character grows from daily acts of honesty, respect, responsibility and compassion. We pledge to develop these ideals in ourselves with courage and integrity, and instill these virtues in the students we teach.
Miss Anita began dancing at the age of 3 1/2 and continued her studies with Nellie Cook until she was 20, At l7 she was accepted as a New York Junior Rockette. Miss Anita extended her dance education by studying under numerous masters, including Frank Hatchett. Jo Jo Smith, Mary Jane Brown, Charles Kelley
With over 35 years of experience, we’ve been getting exciting results for our dancers and performers.
“I spent my entire childhood and adolescence dancing with Miss Anita. She fostered my love of dance and I am forever grateful to her for those wonderful years as I continue to dance to this day!”
“Anita’s has been my daughter’s home away from home for almost 12 years….it is her “happy” place, and the teacher’s are wonderful.. They have inspired her, and have instilled such a love of dance in her that she hopes to study it in college and pursue a career in dance!!!!”
Hats off to all of you for another wonderful performance. This was a wonderful year with outstanding performances from the students and teacher. An extra round of applause to the teachers and the time and dedication you all do year after year. This is no easy task dealing with kids and parents alike and long hours. You all make it seem so easy year after year. Giovanna and I both are looking forward to another summer and year with all of you again.
Words can’t say enough for all you do. Most important please know you are all greatly appreciated.
Have a peaceful and rested weekend. Enjoy your family!

“Dear Miss Anita,
My daughter had been dancing at the same studio for 6 years. This fall she left that studio and joined your studio. Tonight I attended your Parent Observation. I wanted to take the time to let you know that I can not believe the difference in dance education that she is receiving at your studio. I am so impressed by her teacher’s commitment to teaching her students technique. I had no idea what my daughter was missing out on until I watched her in your studio.
We are so excited!”
“Love the family atmosphere! My daughter has been dancing here for 7 years and she loves Anitas!”
“Great studio with talented , friendly staff. My daughter is on her 6th year here and loves it very much.”
“My daughter has been dancing at Anita’s for 4 Years and LOVES it. Great Studio, with Great Teachers and Great Kids!!”
