Our Mission Statement

fabulous feet dance centerTo provide students with a high-quality dance education taught with the ut-most professionalism. It is our unique balance of fun and proper technique that allows us to recognize and celebrate each student’s talents and abili-ties.

A Note From Our Director: Robyn Boudreau

When I first opened Fabulous Feet Dance Center in 1993, my goal was simple: to provide students with a quality education taught with the utmost professionalism. I personally vowed to become the best dance teacher possible and be recognized for the caliber of my students. Each year, as I greet our new and returning students, I am reminded of my commitment to quality dance education.

To this day, my entire staff and I affiliate with the top professional organizations in the dance education industry. We continue our personal development through ongoing seminars, workshops, and conventions by nationally recognized teachers and institutions.

At Fabulous Feet Dance Center, our class instruction is a dynamic mix of fun, art, and proper discipline. We emphasize technique and terminology from the minute each student steps into the studio. My philosophy is to place students in class according to individual ability and skill level. Our curriculum allows students to advance as specific skills are mastered.

My teachers and I personally challenge our students in the classroom through individual corrections and their various learning styles, while ac-knowledging that every student is unique and adapting to their different abilities. Our students develop poise, confidence, and a positive attitude that will carry them from the studio to the stage to life.

We proudly serve the dancers in Martin and St. Lucie Counties, including Stuart, Rio, Sewall's Point, Jensen Beach, Hobe Sound, Port Salerno, Palm City, Port St. Lucie, St. Lucie West, Fort Pierce, and White City.
