Who We Are
Oh, Goodness! I was told by everyone that I needed a website. So, here it is!
In 1977, I started my studio and, at the time, I had a two year old son and was very pregnant with my second. What was I thinking?! But, I love to dance and love children so that meant opening up Sharon Davis School of Dance. I couldn’t have done this without my husband, Buck. He has been my partner and sounding board throughout the years.
I started out in a small studio at Timberlane Shops on the Square (now called Market Square) with only one other teacher. We offered ballet, tap, jazz, and aerobics. I stayed in that location for a couple of years, always dreaming of some day owning my own building with two spacious rooms for dance classes. I wanted to teach more styles of dance with more levels and a wider range of ages. Thirty-two years later there are seven teachers and hundreds of students having a good time dancing in a beautiful studio that overlooks the wetlands. We’ve come a long way, baby!
My philosophy of dance is to teach correct technique and make it fun for my students. For example, the way we teach first position in ballet is to draw a heart on the dance floor for the student to stand in. It is a perfect first position and it makes them smile and giggle. We call all of our preschool ballet students’ ballerina princesses because they are beautiful when they dance. I recently ran into a former student who thanked me for helping her become a more confident and poised trial attorney. She felt this was because of all her years of dance and performing in front of large audiences. Even though most of our students do not become professional dancers, they use the tools that they learned from dance throughout their lives. It is gratifying to know this.
I have met the most wonderful families throughout these years, and former students are now bringing me their daughters for instruction. This makes all the hard work worthwhile. I look back and am thankful to say I’d do this all over again. Dance has been so great to me and I hope I have been good for dance. So, welcome to our family of dance. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Sharon Davis School of Dance has been voted BEST Dance School In Tallahassee for 2014. This makes FIVE years in a row!
