History

The Dance Loft was opened in 1984 by Willa Damien and has become a leader in dance education on Long Island's south shore.  In 2014, Brooke Robyn Dairman joined Ms. Damien as Co-Director, and together they have established a world-class training program unparalleled by any other facility in the area.  With extensive class offerings and a staff of leading professionals, students of all ages and abilities continue to return to the Dance Loft year after year.  Serious students are drawn to our structured ballet program, ongoing masterclasses, and award-winning competition team.  Recreational dancers enjoy our wide range of class offerings that allow students to develop at their own pace.  The Dance Loft offers one of the only adult dance programs on Long Island, and we welcome adult students of all levels and ages.  We encourage you to stop by our beautiful loft space located in the heart of Long Beach, NY.  We look forward to dancing with you soon!
