    In 1994 Tina Hansen was able to follow her dream when she founded The Dance Factory. The school has grown to be one of South East Wisconsin’s most known and loved studios for many reasons. Her students have been accepted into the professional level programs at, The Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company, in Winnipeg Canada, are graduates of the famed Julliard college in New York, and most high school graduates receive scholarships in dance, if they attend college for dance or a related field.

    Currently, her former dance graduates can be seen working in off Broadway productions in New York, in Los Angeles California for industrial films as well as London, UK.

    The Dance Factory is a mix of a friendly, fun, and professional atmosphere!  The primary focus of the school, is based on our ballet program. It is from a strong technical ballet background, that our dancers gain the strength and knowledge for other dance disciplines. A balance of structure and freedom are encouraged to keep the joy of dance and the discipline needed to excel in check.   Here at The Dance Factory, we are committed to keeping both aspects of training young dancers’ for their success in this field
