Serving the local community since the early 1990s, Morgantown Dance Studio is still pulling out its very best moves, earning the BOM award for a third time since 2013. At one time primarily a ballet studio, Morgantown Dance has expanded its repertoire to include everything from tap, hip-hop, and Irish dance to musical theater and strength and conditioning classes. About 250 students of all ages call the nonprofit arts organization home, something Morgantown Dance Board President Isaac Wolford attributes to the diversity and camaraderie the studio offers.
“We have as broad a range of people as you can possibly have in terms of age, culture, and socioeconomic status,” Wolford says.
The studio is run by highly skilled contracted teachers as well as volunteers, all of whom have a love for dance and want to instill that same passion in others. That’s why they offer flexible financial arrangements, low production participation fees, and even a free men’s and boy’s ballet class.
