The Benefits of Dancing with Marshall Ellis Dance School

  • World Class Training: Our teachers have danced around the world, held extensive professional careers in the performing industry, and share a love of passing our knowledge of dance to the next generation. 
  • Performance Opportunities: If you are interested in performing and gaining professional credits on your resume, you have found the right place! We offer performance opportunities for ages 3-Adult, and we host four Youth Ensemble Companies focused in Ballet, Contemporary, Tap and Jazz (Elite Ballet Company, ME1 Dance Company, ME2 Dance Company and OTOWN TAPS).
  • Professional Dance Company: We are partnered with professional dance company Dance Theatre of Orlando to give our aspiring students additional performance opportunities throughout the year.
  • Flexible Training Options: At Marshall Ellis Dance School, we offer several options to train: 
  • Students have the ability to simply drop in and take a class for $10/class. 
  • For students looking for more structured training, we offer unlimited classes for only $200/month. With this option, students have access to up to 32 classes per week in all styles of dance. Our faculty is able to help guide you to build a unique class package that best helps you achieve your goals. 
  • Technique Classes: All of our classes are focused on learning and refining technique in all styles of dance (Example: if you choose to participate in a ballet class, the entire lesson will be focused on classical ballet technique). We strongly believe that a strong technical base in each style of dance helps every dancer become a more well-rounded artist with a deep appreciation for all forms of dance.
  • Open Year Round and Most Holidays: We are a year-round training facility, and we host various classes and workshops throughout the year. We only close the week of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
  • TeamME +: Marshall Ellis Dance School has created a unique training program called TeamME+ for students interested in achieving specific goals as a young dancer. This program is open to dancers ages 8-18 and focuses on body awareness, performance artistry and growing a strong technical foundation. With this benefit, students can take unlimited classes offered at Marshall Ellis Dance School.
  • Dance Competitions and Conventions: If you are interested in attending dance competitions and conventions, TeamME is the correct program for you. Members of TeamME can choose any competition or convention event throughout the year to participate in (no minimum or maximum events required). We train solo, duo and trio groups at competitions. With this benefit, students can take unlimited classes offered at Marshall Ellis Dance School.
