“To Live is to Dance”

Studio One was established in 1960 by Gloria Rustmann. Gloria had been teaching many years as “Gloria’s School of Dance.” In 1960, the name “Studio One” was born with the intention to have a “Studio Two” and “Studio Three.” Today, Gloria’s daughter, Gabrielle Rustmann Barnett, runs the studio. Gabrielle has discovered, as Gloria did, that having one dance studio keeps you busy enough. Therefore, no plans for additional studios at this time!

This website was created as an informational outlet for parents of Studio One dancers. Emailing and texting are the main forms of communication with parents, and the website will be an additional way of keeping parents in the loop.

Besides recreational classes, we also offer the experience of competitive dance.  Our Elite Team competes each spring and is very successful, while remaining humble and keeping our sights on striving to constantly grow and improve.  Our teammates each have buddies who they support and encourage throughout the season.  We love our team family and enjoy not just our competitions but the extra things we do together such as our team lock-ins at the studio, conventions and dinners together.

This site contains Studio One policies, class requirements, and financial obligations. We will update it periodically with information on Studio One news and events. We hope it will be helpful!
