Learn the beauty and art of dance with lessons at our noncompetitive, family-focused dance studio in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey. Named after our founder, Mary Lou Hale's School of Dance is a full-service dance studio that provides dance lessons for you and your family.
Celebrate dance at a studio that values each individual dancer. We believe that every student is special and should have the opportunity to experience the joy of dancing. Our main goal is to teach you and your family the beauty of dance, in a family-friendly, noncompetitive setting. Our students (of all ages and experience levels) build confidence, self-esteem, strength, flexibility, and an appreciation for the art of dance and movement, while at the same time creating lifelong friendships as part of the Mary Lou Hale's family.
Over 50 Years of Teaching Students to "Dance Happy" Miss Mary Lou founded our studio in 1962, teaching dance to local neighborhood kids before building and expanding her studio from there. In 2000, her daughter, Miss Karen, took over the company and has worked hard to keep Miss Mary Lou's name, vision, and dreams alive.
