🌟Hello Knightdale! We would like to showcase The Dance Center - of Knightdale at 827 N Smithfield Rd! The Dance Center is a well established studio in the Knightdale community, owned and operated by Ms. Cindy who has been instructing dance for 20 years. In fact, Ms. Cindy has been dancing since she was a young girl. Funny story, she started with the sport because her sister’s boyfriend’s Mom taught dance. Once they broke up, her sister eventually stopped dancing.. but Cindy fell in love with dance and never looked back!
I had the chance to interview Ms. Cindy before her fall classes started, she was adding some last minute finishing touches to her studio. We had a cup of coffee at the Coffee Chamber, which is right next store (an added perk* of the studio!) She told me all about the history of her center, the classes she offers, the fact that she even makes sure her students learn proper technique and terminology before memorizing any choreography. She said some French words that I don’t dare try to repeat😳 Needless to say, I was thoroughly impressed with her knowledge of the craft. 🌟
Beyond her knowledge, and her business acumen—my biggest take away from the interview was her passion for the sport and her compassion for the dancers. She shared stories of the heartwarming experiences that she has had with her students over the years. Her instructors impart upon their students the importance of good manners, grace, and commitment. In addition, classes give older students a positive outlet to focus their energy and can keep them distracted from the many weighing factors of life that become so abundantly heavy during teenage years. The students learn a skill set that sets them up for success, regardless of their career path. 🌟
The Dance Center offers classes for adults as well. In fact, Ms. Cindy offers free classes to 2 different senior centers here in Knightdale. What an awesome way to serve the community! Also, we are incredibly grateful for Ms. Cindy’s donation of One Years Tuition to her center (minus costume fees), thank you!
