Take The Lead
Take the Lead Dance Studio in Hockessin, DE has been fortunate to have made it through the Covid crisis. We feel that challenges are what make champions. We took the time to
improve what has been successful and modify things that could be better.
We've added classes, did a major renovation of our studio, bought new equipment, and are updating our website knowing that people are looking to get out and dance.
As of May 21, the State of DE and the CDC have said masks are no longer required indoors for those who are vaccinated. We continue to follow those guidelines.

we encourage students to use as many of the tools of learning we offer.
Group classes allow you to practice steps repeatedly with a variety of partners.
Private lessons work on specific techniques and styling personal to you and your goals.
Dance socials give you the opportunity to practice in ‘real world’ situations what

Our Client Say It Best
"This is a wonderful Studio and the owners strive very hard to make you feel part of their “dance community” … they are very welcoming from the moment you walk in to when you leave. I have gone back for more than one group dance and am now doing the Friday night Workshops. Peter and Debbie are the best and you will not be disappointed if you try a dance class at Take The Lead Dance Studio."
