Our History

Noncompetitive Dance Lessons in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey

mlh studio photoFor over fifty years, Mary Lou Hale’s School of Dance has been sharing the joy of dancing with the people of Northern New Jersey.

In 1962, Miss Mary Lou brought together twelve neighborhood children for dance lessons in her home. From these modest beginnings, the studio continued to grow through the years. As time went by, there have been several locations throughout the town of Lake Hiawatha.

Mary Lou Hale’s School of Dance moved to its current home in 1997. The studio located at 135 North Beverwyck Road features two dance rooms as well as our “Dance Store at Mary Lou’s” Boutique.

We are proud to offer professional dance instruction to students ages 3 to Adult (ages 18 months to 3 years with a parent or adult caregiver). Our reputation for providing quality non-competitive dance lessons within a family friendly and relaxed atmosphere is second to none.
