We offer dance classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, hip hop, baton, contemporary and tumbling  for ages 3-adult. This past season, we added aerial silks classes at our Carson City location. We offer a highly respected competition team which is open to any dancer willing to work hard.  Our competition team has been ranked Top 50 in the Nation since 2009.  We offer choreography and private lessons not only in dance, but also specialize in pageants.  Private ballroom lessons, including wedding packages are available. Specialty classes include:  Potpourri (a different genre each week), teen partnering flexibility, extensions, and core strength. Our beginning, intermediate and advanced technique classes are all high level and provide our dancers a chance to excel at a faster rate. At Forever Dance, our dancers not only have fun, but learn to dance too.


Forever Dance was established  in 2008, to provide quality dance instruction to the families of Lake Tahoe and now Carson City. We have two locations: Our original location, Forever Dance Lake Tahoe (FDLT), is in Zephyr Cove, NV (one mile past the casinos behind Roundhill Safeway) at 100 McFaul Way; and Forever Dance Carson City (FDCC)  at 1851 South Roop Street (at the corner of Fairview and Roop).  Each location has 3 separate studios, enabling us to run 3 classes at time.
