Why Choose Groove Nation
1. EXCELLENCE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE
You get immediate assistance by qualified desk staff. In many studios, the teacher or the studio owner conducts classes and does the administration. By trying to do two jobs at once, the class may suffer as the teacher has to use class time for customer service issues, or the studio may have no customer service available if the teacher is in a class.
To have a good experience it is important to choose a studio that can assist you with details like schedule changes or upcoming events, even if a teacher is occupied in a class, from morning until evening.
Our studio has FRIENDLY qualified office staff available over the phone from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm, and a front desk person during regular class times so you can get immediate assistance.
2. EXCELLENCE IN TRAINING
Training at Groove Nation is much more involved then just teaching dance…
You may already know, many dance studios cut corners by using under-qualified teachers or high school dance students to teach classes. But parents today are more careful in making decisions, and looking to get the most VALUE out of their hard-earned dollar.
Although everyone agrees we offer UNSURPASSED training in REAL Hip Hop, we also offer EXCEPTIONAL training in ALL dance styles including: Contemporary and Lyrical Jazz, Dance Technique, Ballet, Musical Theater, Break Dance, Tap or Funk Tap, Ballroom and more…!
From beginners to advanced, ages 2 through adult, Groove Nation instructors are highly qualified to teach their genre of dance; but what sets us apart is that they are also highly trained in working with kids.
Groove Nation is known for purposely building and cultivating confidence, leadership skills, strong character traits, creativity, AND we strive to use only CLEAN dance moves and music to keep it family friendly.
3. STUDIO DESIGN, ATMOSPHERE AND CONVENIENT LOCATION
Walk through our doors, and you feel the ENERGY and EXCITEMENT in our Miami-Style Modern studio design! But it doesn’t stop there, our dancers enjoy the safety of our floating dance floor to absorb the shock, reduce fatigue, and prevent injury that can result from dancing on hard surfaces. Large viewing windows allow parents to see what kids are learning in class.
We offer special lighting to give the dancer a fun party-like feel, and professional sound system in each room. Our studio has a large dance room/event center, several spacious dance studios and music rooms, a large comfortable lobby and waiting area, vending machines, and more. Our lobby is a great place to visit with friends, watch television, or help kids with homework…and is equipped with FREE wireless internet for your convenience.
Our studio has ample parking, and is conveniently located near major stores and restaurants so you can run errands while your kids are in class.
4. WHAT’S INVOLVED WITH THE ANNUAL SHOWCASE / RECITAL?
Groove Nation puts on BREATH-TAKING shows with professional technicians, lighting, video, photography, and sound to help your dancer feel like a star on this special day!
Our studio orders and purchases the costumes for the dancers, so parents don’t have to worry about any costume hassles. Our studio also gives each dancer 2-4 tickets for our year-end show. This way you as a parent will not be faced with any extra work or expenses.
Most studios put on some kind of year end show of mediocre caliber, and may require parents to sew their child’s costumes or be highly involved in the recital. This can be inconvenient and frustrating for parents who are busy.
5. DOES THE STUDIO OFFER EXTRA TRAINING LIKE MASTER CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS?
Why go to LA, when we can bring top-notch celebrity choreographers to YOU?
From “Do-Knock” of SuperCr3w to Phil Tayag of Jabbawockeez (of America’s Best Dance Crew winners), Roman Vasquez (of J-Lo & Britney Spears) to Kolanie Marks (RNG of America’s Got Talent), just to name a few; they have graced the halls of Groove Nation and inspired our dancers to strive for their dreams. Our dedication to excellence is evident, in everything we do!

Beau was absolutely the best teacher we could have imagined for our students. Even though it was just a handful of kids, it left a happy, important, and positive imprint on the students that participated.
What a positive experience Audryann had at the 2 dance intensives. It is so nice to have her someplace that is all about the kids, working hard and having fun. Your instructors were marvelous!!”
I wanna say thank you for everything, for being my second family and accepting me. I really appreciate you believing in me.
What you guys have developed is such an amazing blend of terrific, dedicated instructor’s and a place for dedicated students. We couldn’t be happier to have found you. Looking forward to fabulous dancing at Groove Nation!!!!
We love the care and patience you have when you teach. Thank you for pouring yourself out for this next generation, in your style. I can’t express the depth of gratitude I felt for you after leaving your studio! I love the way you have the heart behind the hip hop, yet combine purity and honor in all your moves and music. Please know that it has impacted my life and it has made a difference!
I wanted to say that how much we appreciated the time my son spent at Groove Nation and how much he grew in his heart, spirit and soul because of you and your studio, your ministry to the children and your fine example. YOU ALL ROCK!
My daughter was so excited after taking the trial class at your studio and so excited to come back tomorrow! We have tried a couple of places and she said that this is where she wants to be. It is good to see her so enthused about dancing. She had to make a couple calls on the way home and brag about the “bling bling” award she received. Anyway, I just want to thank you again for being so welcoming to us.
