Jolene and Glen married on August 21, 1988 and later expanded their family to include three beautiful daughters, who grew up around a dance studio. Inspired by the love of dance their family shared, "Mama Jojo" and "Papa Glen" proudly opened Stars Studio in 2008. Building upon the template of Laurel's treasured La Maison de la Dance, which was owned and operated by our very own "Miss Ronnie" for 40 years and where many of our instructors received their impeccable training, Stars Studio took flight. Launched with the intentions of creating a community feel and family-oriented environment, Stars Studio catered its ballet, tap, jazz, and pointe classes to both the recreational and pre-professional dancer. We have since expanded our class offerings to include hip-hop, poms, lyrical, contemporary, BOYS ONLY hip-hop/tap combo classes, toning, ballet technique, and stretch classes.
The theme of "family" is held with the utmost importance to Jolene & Glen. Like their daughters, who now teach and choreograph at Stars, most of our instructors began dancing at young ages and were molded by the dance "family" around them. In 2014, even "Papa Glen" (also known as "Mr. Glen") joined the Star's teaching family, instructing our wildly popular toning classes, which have been credited with increasing our competitive team's strength and endurance. As evidenced by our wonderful teaching staff, teaching assistants, and front office support...we truly are a family-run business!
Our innovative approach to dance classes, coupled with our annual recital keeps winning the hearts of our customers. Due to the kind referrals of our patrons, the Stars Studio "family" grows yearly. In April 2015, we were thrilled to meet this demand by opening our fourth studio, expanding our exisiting space from 4,200 sq. ft. to 6,500 sq. ft.
