Founded in 2010 by Traci-Ann Pearce, Dance Universe is a dance studio catering to children and young adults in South Florida. With an extreme focus on the value of self-expression, Dance Universe combines classical and contemporary training. A distinguishable studio, we are devoted to providing the space and skills that young artists in our area need in order to cultivate self-expression in its best light.

Style, creativity and an open-mind are traits our entire faculty recommends all students put much emphasis on. A dance revolution is occurring and Dance Universe is here to experience it with you. As the studio grows Dance Universe continues to host a core group of advanced students who represent the studio at competitions, conventions and performances around the community.

After training in New York City for five years, Artistic Director Traci-Ann Pearce communicates the importance of crossing the boundaries and pushing limits, so you will find a wide-ranging spectrum of repertory at any of our performances. Dance Universe will never rest on success and strives to improve with each new season.
