About Moore Than Dance

Located in Fridley, Moore Than Dance is changing the culture of dance studios. We believe that arts education brings people together, inspires them and helps them dream.

Our students and staff understand the importance of modesty, and age-appropriateness on and off the stage. Our students have formed lasting friendships, learned to express themselves through the arts and have grown as both people and artists.

We know that our students may have different goals and that is why we offer a number of different styles of classes and commitment levels.

To ensure your class is the right fit, we offer a free trial class. Book today to experience Moore Than Dance and get to know our dance and performing arts family.

Dance Is the Hidden Language of the Soul


At Moore Than Dance, we believe the Performing Arts are a vehicle for each child to discover their self-worth.

While we want our students to become triple-threat performers with an appreciation of dance, theater and music, we place a high value on service, community involvement and personal excellence. We believe performing is not just about the trophies, costumes and glitz.
