Since its inception in 1998, our mission has been to provide students with a strong foundation in dance, beginning with Ballet, and to instill a life-long love of the art form. We welcome students who aspire to become accomplished dancers as well as those who simply enjoy dancing and performing.

Our professionally trained teachers are accepting, caring, and attentive to the interests and needs of each individual student. Our comprehensive dance education program includes Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Tap, Breakdance, Modern, Jazz Repertory, and Broadway. In all of our classes, we emphasize technique and artistic development.

We encourage students to take multiple classes, which enhances proficiency and creative expression. Introducing students to many disciplines also increases the overall dance experience. Doing so also improves students’ skills and helps them choose a dance form best suited to their interests. Tto allow students more performance and community building time we offer Production Study and Jazz Repertory Our dancers perform in two major productions annually: “Nuts About the Nutcracker” in the winter and “Live,” our spring concert.

Our caring and accepting approach and focus on the artistic value of dance have had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of our students.

The School of Dance at the Enchanted Garden is regarded as among the region’s most successful dance schools.  In a 2018 survey of more than 800 Ridgefield Magazine readers, we won the award for best place for “Kids Dance Programs.”

I welcome you to join us.

This dance program is not just about dance, it’s about family.  EG has been a second home to both of my two daughters for 17 years.  Jean Cobelli has embraced them, supported them, shared life moments with them, and guided them to find more passion, enthusiasm and joy in life through dance.
