About Center Stage Dance Studio

Are you ready to become part of the CSDS 'Dance Family'? Now in its 23rd Season, CSDS continues to provide children of all ages, levels, and dance backgrounds with superior instruction in dance and movement. The age-appropriate children's program is full of options for ages 2 to 7 that all encourage a creative, structured, and inclusive environment rich with music and imagination. As students progress they enter the leveled Technique Program that teaches dance fundamentals in the styles of Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Lyrical/Contemporary, Hip Hop dance, and many additional specialty classes. We truly believe that hard work pays off, and that dance is an avenue to carry this valuable lesson through one's life.  With a professional and caring staff, CSDS is a safe and trustworthy choice for fundamental dance education.


CSDS is co-directed by a mother-daughter team; Donna Leonard and Christina Leonard.  Now serving 2 generations of dancers and in our 23rd year, we carry on the love of dance and work to foster the appreciation for this art form in every person who walks through our doors. The CSDS faculty includes dance professionals who are invested, embedded and working in the dance community of Greater Boston.
