About Us

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 with three sprung marley floors, a sprung wood floor and a wall to wall spring floor to prevent injury to our students. Our school features viewing windows into all five studios along with monitors in our lobby. ESOD is over 8,000 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.
