At Mary Ellen School of Dance we strive to provide excellence in dance education for both the recreational dancer as well as the aspiring professional - providing quality classes for toddlers through young adults (ages 1 to 21). Our teachers are committed to helping each student achieve their personal best. We limit the number of students per class so that every student receives proper training and individualized attention.  All students perform at our annual end of year recital.  

For those students desiring further performance opportunities, we are home to the prestigious Ocala Dance Force Company competitive team and Mary Ellen School of Dance Performance Team.  Each year, our team dancers bring home multiple Top Score awards and are awarded numerous dance scholarships.  

We look forward to sharing the joy of dance with you!
