Let your child's joyful childhood memories begin at Footnotes Dance & Music Studio where caring and qualified staff have been teaching proper dance and music technique in Lehigh Acres for over 25 years. An age-appropriate curriculum and limited class size help students develop skills and confidence. Private music studios and floating wood dance floors which absorb impact and reduce fatigue contribute to a focused, professional learning environment where students develop self-discipline, strength of character and respect for others.
Footnotes Dance & Music Studio was founded in 2004 by Barbara McKenzie and Wayne Christiano, Owners/Directors with a new name and ownership. We were in business and teaching dance to the Lehigh Acres community for over 25 years when we decided to incorporate music into the dance program to offer more performing art opportunities to Lehigh Acres. We offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, acrobatics, contemporary, pointe, competitive dance, Zumba, as well as private guitar, piano, drums, violin, voice and more.
As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different music and dance schools. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible. We do not believe we are the best because we’re the biggest. Instead, we believe we’re the biggest because families think we are the best!
At Footnotes, our mission is:
- to enhance the lives of the children in our community,
- to educate children and provide a positive atmosphere for learning,
- to promote self-confidence, responsibility and discipline,
- to develop leadership skills,
- to encourage teamwork and sportsmanship,
- and to promote healthy bodies.
