About Us

Celebrating more than 25 years in Wilson, North Carolina, Dance Studio B’s mission is to inspire our dancers to “B” all they can “B”. Enthusiastic instructors instill a “Can Do” attitude while providing a quality education in dance. Dance Studio B strongly believes in making dance accessible to everyone without regards to race, nationality, ethnic origin, physical or mental limitations. In addition, a key goal for our studio is to instill in its dancers an enthusiasm and desire to have a positive influence within their community. Dancers are encouraged to perform at charitable events throughout the year, culminating with a theatrical production at the end of our season where a portion of the proceeds are donated to a worthy charity or needy cause.
