The Legacy Dance Studio Port Orange and Daytona Beach!

I am excited to announce that I have opened my own Dance Studio in Port Orange!

It is called The Legacy Dance Studio – My dream has always been to own my very own dance studio where I can help shape and mold the next generation of dancers.

I recently lost my twin brother, Scott (Scootie) R. Johnson, unexpectedly and suddenly. This business and name are dedicated in remembering Scott’s legacy, and the lives he touched through his kind heart. I want to build a scholarship program in his name, that is given out yearly to help kids reach their dreams of going to college or pursuing performing arts opportunities.

The Legacy Dance Studio’s goal is to build a strong foundation through ballet, tap and jazz classes in an age appropriate setting and to inspire our students to be the best dancers they can be.  Classes are separated by age and level to ensure dancers are working toward achieving their best and having FUN!

We will be starting a new Performing Arts Company, The Legacy Stars. This company is for ages 10 and up, and will perform at local events and competitions. As a Star, you can expect to shine on stage and come out on top! Auditions are to be held in August, 2015.

We would love to see you there!!!
