Charlene's School of Dance
Where Every Dream.... Is Within Your Reach!


Workshops/Conventions/Competitions -  The studio’s company dancers attend several workshops or conventions per year, to keep on top of new dance treads and enhance their technique. The workshops give the dancers the opportunity to be taught by the top master teachers and choreographers in the country.

Competitions allow for extra performance opportunities and for critique from judges. It also gives the dancers a chance to travel to different cities throughout the country. Through participations in competitions, we hope to motivate both students and faculty by exposing them to the highest caliber of talent available. For us, competition is an education.


National Cherry Blossom Festival (Washington, DC) - 
Dancers from Charlene’s School of Dance in Cresson travel each spring to Washington, DC to take part in the  National Cherry Blossom Parade.
