Rochester Partner Ballet Studio: Dancing with Denise
Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing alongside the full international professional cast are local Rochester children from Dancing with Denise. Dancing with Denise was established in 1985 when owner/teacher Denise Baller taught dance to children in over 40 daycare centers in and around the Rochester area. As her students grew up, she opened a dance studio to add evening and Saturday classes for her students who were then in elementary school and beyond. Dancing with Denise is well known for promoting fun, good health, and confidence in a non-pressure, non-competitive environment. Family-centered, Dancing with Denise hosts and participates in family fun events like local parades, providing entertainment at farmer’s markets, participating in Sea Breeze Dance Days, holding their annual dance recital, hosting birthday parties, Family Fun Nights, and Zumba® classes for all ages (from baby through adult). Dancing with Denise has recently relocated the dance studio to Webster, NY, where “Having Fun is Our Philosophy” will always be the center of what they do.
