At Dance Time, we provide high quality dance lessons on site at preschools and day care centers. Our goal is to reach as many children as possible and introduce them to the joy of dancing and simply moving to music. Providing lessons on site makes it convenient for parents because they don't have to take kids to separate lessons outside of school. The programs are designed to be effective outside of the traditional dance studio setting. Our lessons are developed to meet the needs of young dancers and prepare them for them for more serious, classical training when they are old enough. Dance Time lessons can be a wonderful way to introduce young children to dance and begin a strong dance foundation.


Our director, Kathy Vogt Fowler, has been dancing since the age of four. She did her primary training at the Performance Art Center in St. Charles, Missouri. She went on to complete her Bachelor of Performing Arts in Dance at Oklahoma City University. In addition, she has studied with master teachers in Chicago, Atlanta and New York. Her performance experience includes featured roles with The Dance Company of St. Charles, Southern Ballet Theatre, The American Spirit Dance Company and Stage Right Dinner Theatre. Miss Kathy brings 15 years of teaching experience to this program. She has worked with teachers around the country to develop an effective technique for teaching young children to dance. Her love of children and dance come together in this delightful program. Contact Kathy at dancetimellc@gmail.com.
