Dance Fits U is a training center where dancers of all ages are welcome to train independently, with a team or just for fun!
Growing up in the competitive dance world, between studios, dance teams and theater, we realized the need for specialized technique training for dancers in our area. Dancers can train in confidence to work on their goals, make the dance team of their dreams and further their passion for dance.
Keeping our space positive and always welcoming is of the upmost importance to us no matter if you are advanced or just beginning. Dance Fits Everyone and Anyone. Dance Fits Who? Dance Fits U!
The Dance Fits U Story
Our passion for high level technical dancing began at young age and grew even more when we danced together on the Hamden High School Dance Team. Moving in our separate ways to NYC auditions/shows and college dance team competitions, our eyes opened to the amount of talent in the dance world. This fueled our motivation to bring our experiences back to CT and to guide dancers in more technique focused classes.
We believe dance does not end post “studio life”. We wanted to create a space where dancers who are college level and older can still enjoy dancing or challenge themselves to compete along side us with our adult team.
We opened our doors in 2015 and are proud to have seen our students grow immensely in this short period of time. We’re excited to welcome you to our Dance Fits U Family as you strive for your next goal!
We welcome you into our training center equipped with injury preventative sprung marley and hardwood floors. We strive to continue to bring new tools and exercise equipment into our dance classes to help build strength. We treat dancers as athletes and our instruction promotes health and wellness.
DFU co-owners Kelley May Zaleta and Kristy Cavanaugh are ready to share their expertise in the field of dance with you on their state
of the art sprung floor. The marley surface is suspended on more than 5000 foam blocks to reduce dance impact and injury.
WHAT IS EVERYONE SAYING ABOUT DANCE FITS U?
"Not only is this a top notch facility for dancers but we love their flexible schedules with multiple choices of dance experiences, pay-as-you-go or auto-pay option, and competition teams if interested. The instructors are trained in many aspects of dance and give a wonderful well-rounded experience for all. I can't recommend them enough."
"What I love most about Dance Fits U is the positive atmosphere and motivating "Coaches"! Once you walk through those doors, they make sure EVERYONE feels like a DANCER no matter what your skill level may be :)"
"I took my competitive high school team here for a two hour clinic and am so happy I did! Not only did we learn new conditioning and warm up material, Kelley and Kristy worked with my girls to clean up their pom motions! I will definitely being taking my team back in the spring or summer!"
"Great dance studio! My 5 year old daughter attends and after trying out a few other local studios this was by far the best. Instructors are great and the facility is very nice as well.
My daughter couldn't be happier and I highly recommend Dance Fits U!!"
"Thank you! My daughter had a wonderful time last night at your dance classes. First it was so nice to see her happy and excited about dancing again! The spark is back. And it was awesome to hear the corrections in the leap and turn class. It has been too many years of dancing without correction and she is determined to dance better and continue growing. After just one night with Dance Fits U she thinks that is possible."
