What We Are About

At Freckled Frog Dance Studio, our mission is to provide a joy-filled and nurturing environment where children can freely explore the art of dance while also learning fundamental concepts. Our innovative Mat dance curriculum not only teaches dance but integrates colors, shapes, and letters, fostering holistic development in young minds. We believe in fostering creativity, confidence, and happiness in every child, while empowering families to share in the experience together. Through our unique approach, which allows parents to participate in classes with their children between the ages of 2 to 6 years, we foster unity and connection within families. We prioritize the journey of learning over strict standards, allowing children to develop at their own pace and embrace their unique abilities. For over 15 years, we have been dedicated to celebrating the joy of dance and fostering a sense of belonging within our community. At Freckled Frog Dance Studio, we believe that every child deserves to dance freely and joyfully.

How We Were Founded

Eighteen years ago, Miss Stacy embarked on a quest to find a suitable dance studio for her then three-year-old daughter. Her aim was to discover a nurturing environment where her daughter could cultivate a love for dance, develop essential balance and coordination skills, all while having the opportunity to observe her daughter's progress firsthand. However, her search revealed a lack of options catering to younger dancers, with classes often too rigid in structure and parents prohibited from observing. This situation left Miss Stacy disheartened, especially considering her daughter's shyness, which further compounded her reluctance to return.


Several years later, recognizing the unmet demand for a more inclusive program, Miss Stacy, along with her mother, Miss Carol, took matters into their own hands and established the Freckled Frog dance studio, thereby filling a crucial gap in the market. The inspiration behind the name "Freckled Frog" stemmed from Miss Carol's mother's love for frogs, combined with her affection for her dog freckles.

Eight years ago, Miss Stacy's husband Mr. Josh joined the Freckled Frog team as they expanded to three locations, bringing his expertise and passion to further enhance the studio's offerings.


Miss Stacy's own journey took a profound turn when she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the age of 30. This life-altering experience served as a catalyst, prompting her to reassess her priorities. Realizing that life was too short for a conventional 9-5 job, she and her mother Miss Carol embraced the importance of pursuing one's passion. This pivotal realization fueled their commitment to establishing the Freckled Frog dance studio, where she could channel her love for dance and create a meaningful impact on the lives of others.

While not every child may pursue dance as a lifelong passion, Miss Stacy, Miss Carol and Mr. Josh  firmly believe in the far-reaching benefits it offers, enhancing various facets of a child's life as they continue to grow. Their aspiration for the Freckled Frog program is to create lasting memories for both children and their parents, fostering a sense of joy and fulfillment within the community.

What Makes Us Different

The Freckled Frog offers an esteemed dance curriculum known as the Mat Method, meticulously crafted by our founder, Miss Stacy. This specialized program ensures superior instruction finely attuned to the developmental requirements of young dancers. Moreover, our recitals have earned widespread acclaim for their exceptional quality, serving as a distinguished platform for students to proudly present their talents and achievements all while making fun memories for families. 


Affordable pricing for dance classes is essential for fostering inclusivity and accessibility. By maintaining lower prices, individuals from various socio-economic backgrounds can participate, benefiting from dance's transformative power. Dance not only promotes physical health but also nurtures creativity, self-expression, and confidence, crucial for personal development. Dance should not only be for the wealthy.

Furthermore, we provide optional LEAP Academy classes for our franchise locations if they desire, enabling children to seamlessly continue their dance education throughout their careers. At our corporate locations, LEAP Academy participants have earned numerous awards and scholarships, underscoring the success of our comprehensive dance education approach.


Moreover, providing children with essential dance equipment like mirrors, dance barres, and quality dance floors is indispensable for their growth and learning. Mirrors promote self-awareness and improvement even for the very young. A superior dance floor offers a safe environment for movement, reducing injury risks and enabling full engagement in practice.


Together, affordable pricing and well-equipped dance spaces open opportunities for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to explore their passion for dance. This enriches lives and communities with the joy and benefits of artistic expression.
