We offer dance classes for all ages, but primarily focus on programs for youth, from age 3 - high school. We have over 200 students from the Bellevue, Renton, Issaquah neighborhoods, and beyond. With a staff of over 10 instructors, the dance training and education we provide is top notch, and our students are encouraged to think, create, and grow, so they leave every class learning more about dance and themsleves.
We have a passion for teaching, preserving dance as a performing art, and building character and self-esteem in young people.
Our performing group, Cornerstone Company, is comprised of a select group of dancers who train several hours per week in preparation for performance opportunities at local fairs, festivals, and events. Our dancers have showcased their talents at events like Newcastle Days, Bite of Seattle, Seattle Center's Winterfest, Puyallup Fair, Whirligig, Disneyland, and more! We also offer competitive opportunities and have an all-boys Crew.
Our mission at Cornerstone Studio is to get kids and young adults involved in a physical activity that creates a positive environment for learning, creativity, team-building, and self-esteem. The core values that we teach our students are:
WHY CHOOSE CORNERSTONE?
Cornerstone Studio stands out from other dance studios in the area because we provide a multitude of opportunities for community involvement, give back by partnering with charities like Rescue: Freedom, Extraordinary Futures, Dancemeber, and Treehouse, and promote student choreography and exploration of the creative process.
Plus, we have the best staff of instructors on the Eastside! Cornerstone Studio students are well-rounded, respectful dancers that have a positive attitude and work hard in class. They have enthusiasm for learning, and our teachers are invested in getting to know them on an individual level.
We're a dance studio, but what we provide is a self-reflective experience that most kids walk out of the classroom having learned more about themselves than even the dance steps they were taught. This is because thay are given room to think, create, and are asked questions that keep engaged. We teach what you would expect from a dance studio, and the training we give is superior, but more than that, Cornerstone is like one big family.
