"Two Studios, One Dream" 

Founded in 1970, by the iconic Joe Stanford,

Stanford had served the community of Howard Beach for almost

50 years before acquired by Fallon White & Joelle Messina

of Danceworks Dance Center, in August of 2019. 


Under the direction & care of award winning directors

Ms. Fallon &  Ms. Joelle, Stanford is evolving and has acquired more

than just a new look, but a complete revision in programming.

Dedicated to providing expert dance training in a safe space,

where all are welcome, encouraged to ignite their own

creativity and reach for the stars! 


Our mission is to provide quality training, while building confidence,

self discipline, a healthy lifestyle and so much more. It is our hope that

the lessons taught here will extend far beyond our studio walls,

long after our students leave our care. 


Our professional staff has trained and worked with some of

the biggest names in concert & commercial dance!

They've also professionally cheered for the NY Jets!


We are excited for this opportunity to show you what we're all about!
