ABOUT US

At Formations Dance Center, LLC you can expect to find the perfect blend of classical techniques fused with the freshest styles.  There are classes offered for all ages including preschoolers, adults, and everyone in between. Recreational and Competition students can take classes in a wide variety of dance styles.

You can be assured that you are receiving QUALITY education.   Leslie Murphy, owner and instructor, has a BFA in Dance from Webster University and 15+ years of dance experience and education. MaKayla Hunter, instructor and assistant competition director, has her BA in Dance from Anderson University as well as a minor in nutrition.  At Formations, we desire to give our students an understanding of proper technique and injury prevention as well as a knowledgeable dance vocabulary.  

​​

We preserve an environment for dance that is APPROPRIATE.  For this reason, music is edited as needed to keep lyrics clean.  Students are required to wear a leotard and leggings (or tights) for every class. Additionally, recital and competition costumes are carefully picked with modesty in mind.

​​

At Formations we hope that all students will be INSPIRED to perform to their highest level of artistry in a caring and nurturing environment.
