Our Studio

Qualified teachers in an uplifting environment!

At Izizwe Dance, not only do our dancers learn the most important dance techniques found in the professional world today, but they learn them from some of Massachusetts most talented teachers and dancers. Izizwe Dance also brings in highly respected guest teachers from Boston and South Africa to give students a truly unique and valuable experience!

We keep our class sizes small to focus on each students individuality and talents from their first dance class with us to their final bow at our end of the year performance!

Testimonials from parents and students

“Love the teachers, the atmosphere and the fact that my daughter loves coming to every class!  Amy and her staff have been great to deal with and really have shown my daughter so much about dance, about herself and given her so much self-confidence.  You can’t find a better studio than Izizwe Dance!  They focus on technique in a small studio in small class sizes so each dancer gets personal attention.” -Beth  (parent of an Izizwe dancer )
