Robert Thomas Dancenter

Come Join Us!

You have friends at the Dancenter, you just don’t know them yet! The Dancers at Robert Thomas Dancenter come from varied backgrounds, in part due to our proximity to Iowa State University and its vast diversity of professors, staff, and students. The dancers speak fifteen different languages in addition to English. Your dancer will become friends with dancers from across the street and around the world.

To provide for this diversity we offer several dance styles and programs presented by experienced professionals specializing in each. The styles include: Pre-ballet, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Pointe, Hip-hop, Stretch, Irish, Competitive Dance, Contemporary, Lyrical, Acrobatics, Ballroom, Character, Middle Eastern, Arabic, Egyptian, East Indian, Break-dance, Yoga, Cardio Dance, Cheer Clinics and soon Ballet Folkloric and Flamenco. The Programs include Dancenter Dancer Company, Iowa Youth Ballet, and the Irish Performance Team. Individual workshops, intensives, and private training are periodically scheduled or available upon request.

Robert Thomas Dancenter Professionals will lovingly bring out the dancer in you or your child and provide the fundamentals needed for excellence.
