BCSD was founded in 1981 under the artistic vision of owner/director Brenda Cranford.


Our purpose and vision for our studio has and always will be providing a positive as well as technical dance education for each student regardless of age or ability level.  Our adult staff are all certified and trained to teach all genres of dance and are qualified, experienced Instructors.


Our facility has over 10,000 square footage space and provides a special waiting area equipped with in-classroom cameras and a television monitor in the lobby so a class can easily be observed without interruption.  Most importantly, our studio has 3 spacious dance rooms which are equipped with professionally installed floating flooring by Stagestep to provide only the safest training atmosphere for our dancers.


Upcoming Events

Hear what they're saying about us...

"For us, BCSD was the only place we would consider when our daughter was told she needed to take some dance classes to be a true, "triple threat" in musical theater.  BCSD has an impeccable reputation for classy costuming and choreography, has done well competitively, has amazing teachers, and a family-style environment.  We had no idea our daughter would fall in love with dance and give up her acting and singing pursuits as she did, but found her port in the storm of high school by dancing in, eventually, just about every competitive team BCSD has.  I recommend this experience to anyone with no reservations.  It has been the time of our lives!"
