Dancing Since 1988 Our Story From The Beginning

Since 1988, we’ve been honored to serve thousands of amazing students. Over the past 30+ years, our mission to spread love and appreciation for dance while teaching our students life lessons has been our joy and honor!

Founded as The Dance Shop by local dancer Connie Draper, who later partnered with Susan Keitt, TDS Dance Studios is now owned and operated by their daughters, Shauna Mitchell and Neely Lashford, who continue to share the joy of dancing with Upstate families.
