Our History 

Established in 1981, Progressive Dance Studio (PDS) is one of Bergen County’s most respected and experienced Dance Studios. PDS was originally founded as a ballet studio, and over the years it has steadily grown to offering classes in all the major forms of dance including: Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Acro Dance, and Adult Classes. Our Tots in Tutus & Creative Movement programs for 3, 4, and 5 year olds are the perfect introduction for your dancer-to-be!

In addition to PDS's strong dance curriculum, our faculty is highly qualified and offers their experience to our students. Our teachers have experienced dance on and off Broadway. Some also teach at New York City’s premier Dance Schools, such as Broadway Dance Center, STEPS, and Peridance Center. PDS’s infusion of outstanding dance teachers from New York & New Jersey provides an atmosphere of learning, inspiration, and excitement for our students.

As we celebrate our 37th year, we instinctively know how to provide a rewarding experience for dancers of all ages, and we invite anyone who wants to learn to dance to come and experience that which PDS has to offer. At Progressive, we focus on providing a solid foundation in dance education. Our reputation is based on a first-rate faculty and staff. We make it abundantly clear that we love what we do, and our level of customer service is unsurpassed and enjoyed by all who pass through our doors!
