At En Avant, we strive to help each child in our dance program attain self-confidence and the highest level of skill she/he is capable of achieving. We provide the foundation for dance to become a lifetime activity that will lead to physical and psychological well-being.

As testament to the quality of the En Avant program, we have had many graduates who have continued dancing through college on dance teams as well as informal companies, several who have gone on to teach, some who have opened their own studios, and a few who have performed with Nationally renowned Dance Companies. Established in 1980, our studio has been growing strong in the Eau Claire area for three decades.
