OurHistory & BackgroundFrom the Ground UpEST. SUMMER 2014

The dream of creating a center for the dance arts in Tucson was one that our Executive Artistic Director, Cory Fragoso-Gram, had nurtured for years, but was not planned for years to come. By a string of fortunate events, during the summer of 2014 the opportunity presented itself and the dream of starting our studio became a reality.

Our Teachers

Our vision and focus for this studio and its students is ever-expansive and follows the evolving nature of dance in this country. This includes a strong involvement in the community to give back to the wonderful city of Tucson, encourage a civic and collaborative spirit in our students, and make dance an accessible, relevant art form for Tucson’s youth & teenage community.

For students desiring a strong foundation in dance, whether for personal or career aspirations, it is no longer sufficient to focus on one area to excel, like Ballet or Jazz, but must understand and be competent in all genres. Above all, a strong technical core is essential.

Our academic preparation, professional dance experience, and teaching in many competition-focused studios in Tucson makes our studio uniquely suited to provide today’s students with the proper foundation they need to have fun & become the dancer they dreamed of!

What Our Parents Say

Tiffany GallegoAn amazing studio!

Truly an amazing studio with dedicated teachers. They focus on creating well rounded children instead of just good dancers. My daughter has grown in every way possible since she started at BC Dance.

Michelle Schloss Best studio in town.

BC Dance is such a special place. The training that my daughter is getting as a company dancer is stellar. If you are interested in having a well rounded dancer learning various genres with technique and performance being equally as important, then BC is it. The faculty is amazing…just do a web search. We feel great that these are her role models and instructors.
The community that has been created at BC is pretty exceptional too. Her dance mates are her best friends and she is truly part of a dance family.

Lindsay Stratigouleas Truly the best studio!

My daughters have been dancing at BC dance for 8 years and our family loves it. It’s been supportive, safe, and the best experience. The teachers are incredibly talented and helpful for all ages and skill levels. It is a place for everyone.
