Welcome to the National award winning Encore School of Dance! Encore opened its doors in 1994 under the direction and ownership of Michelle Ritenour. Our school has five spacious studios with state of the art sound systems, large wall to wall mirrors and sprung floors to prevent injury to our dancers. Our school features viewing windows into all five studios along with monitors in our lobby. ESOD is over 5,000 square feet with 20 foot ceilings in two of our studios.
We value each and every dancer and parent, and want to make sure your experience with ESOD is consistently exceptional. Integrity, quality and customization are at the forefront of our business. Our staff and faculty always give 100% of themselves, making for an exceptional and positive experience for you and your dancer. When it comes down to it, we're going to help you raise your children by giving them the most fun and enlightening experience possible. You will soon find out it's not just our studio, it's your studio.
ESOD is proud to be a More Than Just Great Dancing affiliated studio! Building confident, happy kids is the core of our philosophy! We teach respect, confidence, diligence and service with age appropriate choreography and costumes! ESOD offers several programs that cover full ranges for all types of students. The studios faculty consists of professional teachers who are fully qualified to provide training that will prepare those students that have the talent and desire to enter a career that is recreational or professional. We welcome you to explore our website and learn more about how we get the most out of every dancer that dances at Encore School of Dance.
This is our 1st year and we have had a blast! My four year old has learned so much in such a short amount of time. I also appreciate how age appropriate their costumes are as I know that is not the case everywhere.

My daughter has been dancing at ESOD for fourteen years. Michelle and her staff genuinely care about their students and want to see them enjoy a lifetime of dance. We highly recommend Encore!
- The Bevers Family
We love Encore. My daughter has started doing backbend walkovers since starting at Encore. She was shy and wouldn't get in front of a crowd to dance but now I can't stop her from dancing. Everywhere we go she is dancing. My son has watched her so much that now he is dancing. My son loves going to Encore even though he isn't in any class!
