Pinnell Dance Centre celebrates “40 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE” this season. We were founded in September of 1976 under the direction of Jeri Pinnell. Over the years, the Dance Centre has become nationally known as one of the top schools in the country. Dance Spirit Magazine voted Pinnell Dance Centre one of the top 50 schools in the nation! Students come to this outstanding studio for a multitude of reasons. Many students enjoy dancing as a recreational opportunity to build skills and improve self-confidence while having fun and creating a healthy body. Others are serious dancers who find a well-rounded program that creates the “total dancer” that can pursue a professional career if so desired. Pinnell Dance Centre has produced students who have performed on Broadway and in tours of Cats, Beauty and the Beast, Million Dollar Quartet, Will Rogers Follies, 42nd Street, Jesus Christ Super Star, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Music of Andrew Lloyd Weber, Requiem Variations, West Side Story, etc. Students have also danced with the Radio City Rockettes in New York and Los Angeles, as well as in music videos with Beyonce, Madonna, JayZ, etc, on Glee, on cruise ships and at theme parks including: Disney World, Disney World Tokyo, Opryland, Busch Gardens, Kings Island, Great Escape New York, King’s Dominion, etc.
