About Us
Dancer’s Alley is the Southern Tier’s premier dance studio. Under the artistic direction of Amy Bush we offer classes in tap, ballet, pointe, jazz, hip hop, modern, lyrical, musical theater, and contemporary choreography.

Dancer’s Alley provides dance instruction for those young in age and those young at heart! Our instructors are dedicated, not only to guiding students in the quest to reach their potential, but to continuing their own dance education by attending masters classes and dance conventions. Most recently our staff had the opportunity to work with such greats as Tyce Diorio, Judy Rice and Barry Youngblood, which enables them to bring you the freshest dance techniques and choreography.
