Muscatine Academy of Music and Dance & The Dancer's Place

The Dancer’s Place & Muscatine Academy of Music & Dance are under the direction of Beth Place-Pridemore.  The Dancer's Place was established as Jeanette’s Dance Studio in 1979. Beth obtained ownership in 2009 of the Davenport location. In 2015, she acquired Muscatine Academy of Music and Dance, in Muscatine IA.

Our Philosophy is to provide quality dance instruction in a fun and loving environment in order to promote lifelong learning, fitness and enjoyment. Building self-esteem and confidence;  on an individual basis, while bringing the dream of dance to reality. We are dedicated to teaching our students proper technique, teamwork and commitment. Our teaching staff is highly qualified with over 50+ years combined experience and committed to the art of dance!

Our studios offer wide variety of classes to fill every dancer’s needs and abilities. We are proud to offer classes in Tiny Tot Creative Movement, Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Tap, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Poms and Tumbling for ages 2 and up. We also have a Competition Team. We are very particular about teaching our team that Competition is not all about winning.  It is about the lessons along the way, the work to get there, the teamwork, the commitment, and the love for dance.  It provides additional opportunities for the extremely committed dancer to do more in the dance world.

We are committed to using appropriate music, choreography, and costuming for all dancers at our studios!  Along with providing small class sizes for all levels.

The Dancer’s Place and Muscatine Academy of Music and Dance are excited to recognize studio families for their time, dedication and commitment. We strive to meet their expectations as we teach their children about the love of dance!

It’s never too late to start something new!
