Why to Choose Groove Nation


Can I 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 studiothat 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 studios have FRIENDLY qualified office staff  available from 9:00 am until the 9:00 pm in the evening and a front desk person during regular class times, so you can get immediate assistance.


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 with our economy today, parents are more careful in making decisions and looking for getting 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,  for 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 and creativity AND we strive to use only CLEAN dance moves and music to keep it family friendly.


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. We offer special lighting to give the dancer a fun party-like feel, and professional sound system in each room.  Both locations has 3 large dance 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. Large viewing windows allow parents to see what kids are learning in class. Our lobby is equipped with FREEwireless internet, for your convenience, it has ample parking and is conveniently located near major stores and restaurants, such as Wal-Mart, Winco, Costco, and more,  so you can run errands while your kids are in class.  Two Locations:  Hazel Dell near Wal-Mart, and Fisher’s Landing near Best Buy.


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 studios order / purchase the costumes for the dancers, so parents do not have to worry about any costume hassles. Our studio also gives each dancer 2 free 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.


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.

  • 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.
