About Us


The Studio School of Dance was founded in 2013 by Diana Madrigal-Barnitz in the quest  to provide quality dance training. Located in Metairie Louisiana, The Studio promotes an atmosphere of excitement and fun while never drifting from the true professionalism and discipline required to becoming proficient in the art. Its students are given an opportunity to discover their own potential, not only as dancers, but as choreographers and teachers.

We believe that dance provides a foundation for success in life. The skills learned in the dance classroom transfer to other area of a student’s life. Dance classes increase the child’s well-being by improving his/her physical development and intellectual skills and by increasing self-discipline.

The Studio subscribes to teaching through positive reinforcement and nurturing in order to produce a life-long respect and love for dance, as well as, very happy and well-trained young dancers. It encourages the stimulation and cultivation of the creative nature of the student through dance education.

Our students learn in a pleasant environment with small classes favorable to their dance education. It has high standard of class instruction, workshops, master classes and special guest instructors.

The Studio strives to provide a holistic approach to movement discovery, including a pre-professional training and classes for those new to dance. The Studio also offers adult classes, workshops, and fitness classes to everyone to enjoy.
