About Us About our Owners
After over ten years in the 3rd Street location it became clear students and families were asking for more classes and training opportunities than could fit under one roof. Sophie Pierce and Brandi Krieger dreamt up a spin off a studio called Studio B by Sophie Dance which was inspired by the style of dance studio Brandi herself grew up and trained in back in Michigan.
Brandi and Sophie are beyond excited to have this additional studio to host our Competition Teams as well as plenty of classes for those dancers passionate about dance technique. This space will focus on growth of dance in a team environment. Helping your dancer not only grow in their dance training but in confidence, teamwork, and work ethic.
We love our Dance family here at Studio B and want to provide dance competition in an encouraging environment. Free from the over pageantry, allowing our dancers to perform in age appropriate costumes and focusing on the art and creativity of dance. We also want to give realistic time commitment options for families who do more than dance. But, still train hard and compete confidently. Our team of coaches, teachers and choreographers is top notch!
