FENTON'S ORIGINAL DANCE STUDIO

Founded in Fenton, MI in 1981, FSD&A has the longest history of any dance studio in our community. And for good reason. FSD&A's focus on community engagement, quality instruction, and the power of dance as a way to inspire and empower youth has kept us thriving for over 38 years.

FOCUS ON COMMUNITY

Our focus has always been on creating a strong community both in and outside of the studio. Every year, FSD&A awards tuition and costume scholarships - up to $3,000 - to students who demonstrate professionalism, hard work, and dedication. 

FSD&A also regularly donates to and volunteers with community nonprofits like the Fenton Area Resources and Referral Network (F.A.R.R.) and Snuggle Sacks of Fenton, MI.

DIVERSE OFFERINGS

We offer recreational classes for dancers of all ages - from 2 to 82! - in all genres, including acro, ballet, pointe, contemporary, tap, jazz, hip-hop, and musical theater. 

We also have one of the most highly regarded competitive programs in southeast Michigan, earning FSD&A the 2019 "Class Act" Studio of the Year Award by Dupree Dance. 

Magic Happens Here

Fenton's original dance studio, Fenton School of Dance & Academy has been a keystone in our community, inspiring students through movement, since 1981. 

Competitive, recreational, adult, and tot classes available, led by educated and experienced dance industry experts. 

We know you have options.

So why dance at FSD&A?
