The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

Champion Dance Studio is all about creating a fun and exciting opportunity for students to learn fine arts. After offering over 30 years of established Fine Arts instruction, the studio is proud to announce moving into to the new state of the art facility with many new offerings in place for the entire family. The studio offers a safe, nurturing environment allowing growth and development with each form of dance. All dance studio rooms are equipped with floating dance floors which help reduce the risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired. The studios also offer mirrors that start at floor level so that dancers can see their feet from any place on the dance floor and one-way glass observation windows into each studio. Directors are all professional educators and have provided instruction to generation after generation of dancers.

The Plaza Theatre Performing Arts Center opened in 1930 as both a modern film house and a stage production venue. Commonly referred to as "The Showplace of the Southwest," the Plaza was once the largest theater between Dallas and Los Angeles.

It boasts elaborate architecture and decor, and has hosted concerts, stage shows, and movies. The Plaza will soon feature such acts as the Blue Man Group, B.B. King, and the Broadway production of West Side Story.
