Eastside Dance Company is fully dedicated to educating dancers in the art of dance. We pride ourselves in having a well-organized studio with a loving, nurturing environment that maintains age-appropriate choreography in a family friendly atmosphere.
While offering a wide variety of dance styles, we focus on building the dancer's technique, growing artists, and instilling skills that promote success far beyond the dance floor. We believe that personal growth and self-esteem are important results of dance education. Hard work pays off not only by improving dance technique but also by promoting a healthy lifestyle and developing our students' personal understanding of dedication. Through meeting personal goals and accomplishments dancers build self-esteem and confidence.
In addition to challenging our students, we believe that learning the art of dance should be a joyful experience. Enjoyment and love for activities supports the development of confident, resilient individuals who strive to make a positive impact in our community.
With three dance rooms, a staff of over a dozen, and offering more than sixty classes a week, we have a class for everyone. Eastside Dance Company offers classes in all genres for the recreational dancer to the pre-professional student. We believe in giving dancers every opportunity by offering an array of experiences.
The owner, Julia DeDominick DeRites, strives to create a professional, well organized, and positive atmosphere where children can grow and flourish. She gives the glory to God for the opportunity to provide dance to our community and is passionate about developing not only great dancers and well-rounded performers, but also instilling a kindness and appreciation for the art of dance and all who make dance possible. She is dedicated to teaching dancers the importance of being a lifelong learner, being appreciative for the gift of dance, and teaching many valuable life lessons learned through dance. Most importantly she believes in teaching kindness both on and off the dance floor.
Eastside Dance Company develops dancers that are positive, kind, and hardworking who have a love for learning and dance!

On October 24 - 25, 2020 we hosted our first ever outdoor recital. "2020 A Moment in Time." We are so proud of our dancers who took the stage as we completed our 2019 - 2020 dance season!
"Every MOMENT IN TIME gives us the chance to love, to learn, to dream, to shine and to become more than we ever imagined"
This right now is just "A Moment in Time!"
