We opened our Morris location in 1993 and added a second location in Channahon in 2002. Since 1993, thousands of students have taken dance and music classes at our two locations. We started as a very small studio, but have grown to become the largest dance studio in the area and now the state-of-the-art, Forte Arts Center in Morris is a 15,000 sq. ft. facility that allows us the space to grow and offer a variety of instruction in the arts and preschool. Our Channahon location is a 5000 sq. foot facility that offers dance instruction.

We do not believe that we are the best because we are the biggest. Instead, we believe we're the biggest because families think we are the best. As parents, we realize that you have a choice between several different studios. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure our students and parents the best experience possible. Today, as in 1993, there are several different studios to choose from. We invite you to compare all of the features and options that we offer in dance and music. Dance. See why our studio is right for you.
