Our Story

Turning Pointe Dance Studio has been my childhood dream since I was nine years old.

Even then, I knew I wanted to create a place where dancers were part of something more than just dance classes.


Since opening our doors in 2005, it has been my goal to provide a learning environment for our students that is welcoming, nurturing and inspiring. What I discovered along the way was how my students inspire me with their innocence, laughter and eagerness to learn. As a teacher, I am honored to play a small, but significant role in their development.

Owner artistic director Amy Houston

As a studio owner, I feel it is my responsibility to prepare our students with the skills they need to achieve their personal goals while building character, integrity and self confidence. I also feel it is my job to guide our dancers when it comes to choices involving performance.


It is important to me that our dancers learn proper technique and vocabulary and that the movement is suitable for their age. Music is what moves us and I feel there are so many songs we can choose that are energetic and free of inappropriate content. Costumes are certainly an exciting part of performance and I love that our dancers wear outfits that are tasteful and flattering yet fun and full of color. A lot of care and thought goes into our decisions and I am proud that our Christian values are reflected in each one of them.


I am truly blessed to be able to share my love of dance with our students every day. It is rewarding to see how they learn and progress year after year. I appreciate you taking the time to learn more about Turning Pointe Dance Studio. We look forward to welcoming you into our family of dancers.


Blessings,

Amy Houston
