New Wasilla Music & Dance Studio
Who We Are:
Wasilla Music & Dance Center is a unique studio offering quality private & group music and dance classes at the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center in Wasilla and beginning in the fall of 2019 at a new building on Herning Avenue in downtown Wasilla!
The new building has a state of the art dance studio and 5 music studios. The dance studio has a floating "marley dance floor, which helps reduce the risk of injuries and allows students to dance longer without getting tired. The music rooms are professionally designed for private lessons, group guitar, keyboard and preschool music classes.
The new building is designed so multiple students can take private or group music lessons and dance classes at the same time on the same day. That means parents only have to drive to one location for everyone's lessons & classes. What a time saver for parents!

Wasilla Music & Dance Center believes learning to play an instrument promotes self-expression & builds self-confidence. Our music program is designed to insure a positive experience for every student. Our teachers identify how to teach each, individual student to insure they are learning in the way best suited to them. We show students how to have fun with music while learning important skills and theory. Our students have an opportunity to perform at regularly scheduled, fun recitals—at least 2 per year! Private music lessons are now available for students ages 5-6yrs thru Adult in the following instruments: Piano, Guitar, Drums, Voice, Violin, Viola, Cello, Flute & Bass. We also offer an exciting, Preschool Music Program called Music FunTime. This is an innovative way for children from 18mos thru 7yrs to learn to read music in the same manner they are taught letters, numbers, colors & shapes. Group music classes for students beginning at age 5yrs include Kindergarten Keyboard, Beginner Guitar & Rock Star Beginning Rock Band!
Our students are exposed to dance in a positive, exciting atmosphere! Our preschool classes include the absolutely, positively best way to introduce your child to ballet, in our Angelina Ballerina classes for little ones 3-5 year old. Offerings for Kindergarten students include ballet, ballet/tap & ballet/jazz/tumble. Grade schoolers & teens enjoy choosing from classes in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern & Broadway dance and hip hop. New this year is our Disney Themed Dance Theatre where 6-10 year old's are introduced to jazz & Broadway dance while dancing to their favorite Disney tunes. A spring dance recital is always an exciting time when everyone performs on stage, in costume and in front of family and friends!
Preschool Morning Sessions
Our popular preschool morning sessions on Monday & Wednesday are happening at the Menard Center Studio. These sessions are 2 ½ hours of fun & learning for students 3-5 years old. The first 45 minutes is our Preschool Music Program called "Music FunTime". Little ones begin to learn how to read music notes, identify instruments and count rhythm, and make fun music crafts. The next 30 minutes are filled with dance (ballet or jazz) and then a short snack time. Snack time is followed by an hour of more dance, tumbling & creative movement.
Our teachers use the innovative program, LessonMate to send our students video demonstrations and lesson information for students to review in between their regularly scheduled lesson times. If a student misses a lesson, their teacher will send them their lesson over the LessonMate system so the student doesn't miss out that week, and never falls behind. Wasilla Music & Dance Center gives LessonMate accounts for FREE to all our enrolled students!
