Shirley Winters Ballet 6688 N Cedar Ave. Fresno Ca 93710
A little history first about how we got here. When Shirley Winters decided in 2006 to open her own studio, she contacted Kendra Primavera who had also made the same decision a bit earlier by opening Dolce Dance at Willow and Ashlan Aves. in Fresno. The goal for them was to teach and manage their own businesses but to also benefit the other through increased offerings of class options for their respective students. In 2007 Kim Ridenour brought her management experience into the mix and because of her lead we ended up in a much larger space and more closely located to our students. This is our location today in the Cedar Tree Village at the SE corner of Cedar and Herndon Aves. We continue to operate today as two different businesses sharing almost 10,000 sq. ft. of studio space to benefit students with a variety of options; Shirley Winters Ballet with contemporary and classical ballet and modern dance and Dolce Dance with jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and contemporary.
Here is a look at what you will find inside the studio.
We hope your ballet experience is rewarding.
Every effort has been made to provide an attractive, large room environment for the dancers experience. All five rooms have floating floors. These were specially constructed to give the dancer the best possible chance to avoid injuries from an overly hard, ungiving, non-impact absorbant floor. We have also chosen to cover our floors with Harlequin Studio Vinyl.
