Since 1985, the Mazza-Smith Studio has provided quality instruction throughout the Jacksonville area. Our program is designed to make dance a very special experience – fun and educational. Our emphasis is on our relationships and character building as well as rhythm and movement. We offer the opportunity for our students ages 3 and up to gain confidence and learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, respect for others, self-expression, music appreciation and the exciting art of dance.

We believe β€œIt’s so much more than dance!”
