Welcome to Dance Makers!


  Since 2007, Dance Makers has been bringing the joy of dance to Virginia Beach!  Founded by Ms. Jennifer Pappas, her goal was to offer ballet, tap, jazz, and tumbling to children in school settings.  Because the need for quality, non competitive dance increased, she most recently opened a brand new studio location. 

  Ms. Jennifer has been dancing and studying for over 40 years.  Some of the academies she trained at include the famed Broadway Dance Studio and Steps in New York City,  as well as The San Diego Academy of Performing Arts.  She performed with multiple dance companies and choreographed for various workshops.  She has been teaching dancers as young as 3 for over 30 years!

  Having grown up and taught in studios for years, she believes in instilling proper technique and fundamentals in a fun, supportive and, non-competitive environment.
