Center Stage Dance Studio, in Bloomingdale, Illinois, is described by Mary Pilalis, their Director, as a great studio with a family environment that includes the nationally renowned Aspire Dance Company, the Center Stage Dance Studio Performing Troupe which performs at community events, and their 30 weekly recital classes. This year they are excited to add a tumbling program.
For Excellence in dance, Center Stage has been serving suburban Chicagoland for over 15 years. They pride themselves on not only being the biggest dance studio in the area but also the best!

In Mary’s opinion, Center Stage is unique among other dance studios because their dancers are very diverse, many taking classes in Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-hop, Contemporary, and Ballet.
Her proudest moments occur when she see their kids on stage performing with passion for dance and for one another.
The biggest mistakes Mary sees dancers make are usually technical. Center Stage has really upped their emphasis on technique over the last few years.
Center Stage’s goals are modest. They would like a smooth transition to their new studio, a strong year at competition, and to continue to increase enrollment.
Mary is a lifelong dance teacher. She decided to open Center Stage Dance Studio because she wanted to be able to push my kids in a new direction. They opened 15 years ago.
