    Owner & Artistic Director

    Maria Agabiti Battista, owner and artistic director of Class Act has been a professional dancer and choreographer with over 30 years of experience. After years of training locally from age 3 through college, performing in Atlantic City, New York City, on screen, stage and print, a veteran of the Sixers Dancers, Class Act a Center for Dance was born. Now in its 15th season is remains focused on the QUALITY of Dance Education. We have now consolidated our 2 locations into one, but the idea behind the move remains the same: to add more classes to our schedule to accommodate not only everyone’s busy schedules, but to guarantee the same small class sizes we have thought to be very important from the beginning, and to continue the privilege of catering to each dancers individual needs. Our curriculum is designed to highlight each dancers strengths and continue to motivate them to improve on their  weaknesses, while building confidence, lifelong relationships and character. Our philosophy for our staff is that ‘you never stop learning.’ There is always room for improvement, and we are confident that we can get you to your goals, whether competitively or recreationally, we offer competition teams for all levels. All of our teachers are involved with the arts and required to attend yearly conventions to continue their dance education. Some are currently working in the business and are hired as role models for your young dancers. We are extremely proud of all of our dancers’ and teachers’ accomplishments and would not be the studio we are today without our loyal families.
