History of Liberty Dance Center, LLC
Liberty Dance Center opened in July 2008 at its’ existing location by its’ owner, Kate Theisen-Moody. Opening a dance studio to share her love and passion for dance with young children was a dream/goal of Kate’s since she was a young dancer.
The studio opened in doors on July 28th, 2008 with an initial 40 students in a short 4 week summer season. By the following spring the studio had attracted over 100 students and held its’ first annual Spring Recital at New Berlin West High School. The studio consisted of two dance rooms housed in its’ current location with 2,400 square feet of space. In the first year of business Kate herself taught classes along with one other instructor.
In 2010, with a student count in excess of 200 the studio expanded by doubling its’ space and adding a new 1,500 sq. foot dance room, a second dressing room and increased lobby space. Kate increased the staff to three instructors including herself. The studio also changed the venue of the studio’s annual Spring Recital to Sussex Fine Arts Center in Sussex, WI.
The studio expanded again in early 2014 by adding 1,200 sq. feet of space to enlarge one of the dressing rooms, adding a lunch room, and expanding the lobby area for parents and siblings. Kate also added a fourth dance instructor.
Currently the studio is housed in 6,000 sq feet with three dance rooms, 2 dressing rooms and a large lobby area with viewing windows and TV monitors for parents and siblings to observe classes. Miss Kate now has five teachers on staff plus herself as she continues to teach classes as well.
Liberty Dance Center, LLC prides itself in providing “top-notch” dance instruction to children ages 2-18, offering a variety of dance styles in a “family friendly” environment. Liberty Dance has twice been chosen the winner of the annual WISN “A-LIST” contest for BEST DANCE Studio since it opened its’ doors.
