Welcome to
Denise Daniele Dance Center!

We are so proud to have been a part of the arts community of Ocean County for over four decades!

As one of the longest running arts centers in the area, it truly has been a pleasure and an honor to bring the joy of dance to the lives of thousands of men, women, and children.  Here at Denise Daniele Dance Center we pride ourselves in providing only the highest quality of performing arts education available with a warm and creatively rich environment. Our faculty consists of dance educators with extensive training and experience both in performance and dance education. Our teachers have worked in every avenue of the performing arts including Wicked the Musical on Broadway, Miami City Ballet, Moscow City Ballet, Radio City Rockettes, So You Think You Can Dance and numerous television, movies, and at college programs across the country. But with as many credits as our teachers and alumni can boast, the school remains a humble community with one goal; to share the joy of performance with those that come through its doors!

Andy Blankenbuehler

Tony Award-Winning Choreographer
"In the Heights" and "Hamilton" On Broadway

"As a Broadway choreographer, I have the unbelievable opportunity to touch people's lives through my artistry. That gift comes with it the responsibility to craft my work out of honesty, passion and heart. Through those elements, people's lives are changed. At the Denise Daniele Dance Center, like the school where I was so fortunate to study, those elements are planted like little seeds in the kids who dance there. Denise Blackstone is my friend and has my admiration because through her, dancing can grow to unbelievable places...like winning a Tony Award!"
