Welcome to Dance With Stars Academy!
WELCOME and thank you so much for entrusting the Dance With Stars- Junior Academy with your Kids and Teens dance education. Our studio was established on July 2007. As a Professional Ballroom & Latin Studio, we have been one of the largest studio in the Katy area and the city of Houston. Since that time DWS Academy has produced a wealth of amateur and professional dancers, who are the living embodiment of greatness, style, and grace. We have had the honor & privilege of improving the lives of our students, staff, and everyone who is associated with our company, through the joy of lifelong dancing!
Dance With Stars- Junior Academy is like no other dance studio. It is a unique Dance center for children and youth only. Your children will find many profits, many benefits, and many enhancements to life learning to dance whether it is introduced as an avocation, pastime, or hobby.
