What We Believe

We are a dance studio in Franklin, Tennessee offering classes for students 18 months to 18 years.

At Shining Starz Dance Studio, you will find teachers focused on the growth, development & education for aspiring performing artists of all ages, and a positive family environment that inspires EXCELLENCE WITHOUT COMPROMISE.

From costuming to class content, we strive to be a community everyone can enjoy and feel good about.

Happy Parents and Dancers

"WE LOVE SHINING STARZ!! All our children participate in classes and LOVE IT! They would stay all day if we'd let them."

"Shining Starz is not just a studio, it's a family.. for the children and the parents alike. We love that the heart of the owners and teachers is to encourage and train the students in such a way that they each feel known, loved, and valued."

"We were looking for a studio where God would be honored, the children would be encouraged, and the costumes and routines would be tasteful... SSDS fulfills all of these! So thankful to be a part of this family!"

Please read below to see how Shining Starz is keeping up to date with the Dance Industry and local health officials.

At Shining Starz Dance Studio, the health and safety of our faculty and students are our most important priorities.

As COVID-19 continues to spread and affect many parts of the U.S., we have been closely monitoring state and local conditions. After consulting with dance industry leaders, local health officials, and keeping in line with the local school systems, we have determined that it is in the best interest of our faculty and families to temporarily suspend all in-person classes at the studio and move them to an online format instead.

Effective March 23rd, the studio building will be closed at least until April 6th to help do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Our office staff will be available remotely via email and text and our classes will be delivered to you online with instructions being sent to your inbox in the coming days!

We know it is important to provide some normalcy for children during this time, as well as an outlet for movement and continuation in working towards the goal of our Annual Recital scheduled for May 29-30. We know you as parents will appreciate something to keep them entertained and engaged as well!

We are so excited about the offerings we have coming your way in the next week! Dancers will have the opportunity to complete pre-recorded classes on their own time, attend a few live classes where they can see their teachers and friends virtually, have access to additional resources to keep those young dancers busy and practice their Recital Dances at home! Diamond level dancers will also have the opportunity to train virtually with some master teachers and So You Think You Can Dance stars in addition to the content we provide. Stay tuned for details early next week!

In the meantime, Diamond aged students can check out this additional content while still on spring break. CLI Studios has provided some awesome resources for our older dancers, with FREE live classes at varying times. 

Check out http://www.clistudios.com/keepdancing for a schedule of classes offered and their coordinating levels. 

Thank you for taking the appropriate steps with us to lessen the risk to our community as much as possible. We greatly appreciate your support during these challenging and unprecedented times and know we will all be stronger and closer together on the other side of this.
