Bingham Center has provided Midland-Odessa children the best dance experience for over 60 years. Continuing down the path laid for her; first by Mr. Bingham and next by Ms Joy Swift, owner Jill Clements has worked diligently to maintain that Bingham be the studio of choice. Celebrating their 10 year anniversary of owning the studio, Jill and husband Darin decided to build on a new location adding Tumbling and Tae Kwon Do to the list of classes offered. In the spring of 2014, a modeling and talent agency was added as well.  The studio continually strives to offer the best curriculums, a staff of the highest standards, and the place where fun and excellence unite!
