Dance Hues Studio was founded on the idea that everyone should have equal access to dance education and expression.
Our studio offers dance classes in Lawrence for ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, lyrical, tap, musical theatre, tumbling, and acrobatics.
Classes in different ages and abilities may vary.
STAMPP Company is for youth dancers, ages 5-17, looking for a competitive outlet in dance. The team includes requirements that enhance technique, emphasize team bonding and relationship building, as well as skills in discipline and responsibility.

Did you know that Dance Hues Studio services over 20 scholarship students, who receive aid based on their household income and household size that amount to over $20,000 worth of classes per year?
Did you know that the two owners teach 80% of the classes, and get a very small monthly salary that wouldn't even equate to minimum wage for a weeks worth of their regularly scheduled classes? That doesn't even count their hours of administration, secretary work, choreography, lesson planning, etc.
Did you know that Dance Hues Studio also offers fundraisers for their competition team members to help them pay for their extraneous fees that include costume and competition entry fees that amount to over $10,000 per year?
Did you know that most of these kids would NEVER be able to afford the opportunities they are getting at any other studio, meaning they either wouldn't dance, wouldn't compete, wouldn't get a duet/ trio or a solo?It is the mission of our studio to provide dance to every child who walks through the door. But we need your help to cover the cost of payroll, because as we grow and we service more children, the work load grows, which means the hours of work put in by our owners is insurmountable without pay, because they have to work other jobs.
Without more funds, the studio will have to cut down and limit the amount of scholarships that are given out, this potentially means ripping dance away from the girls who have fallen in love with dance and our studio, and prevent new students from having the same home, safe space, second family, love and passion.
Help us raise money to cover the scholarships we reward to youth who otherwise wouldn't have the dance opportunities they are able to receive through the programs at Dance Hues Studio.
Make donations on our website or through our gofundme site. You can also get involved with our fundraising committee.
