History & Purpose
We welcome sincere students willing to explore the many disciplines of dance. As a student, you must believe that anything of value does not come overnight. Knowledge is attained as one trusts the teacher imparting that knowledge.
Here at STUDIO ONE, you will learn to trust your teacher as well as yourself, so that together we will achieve success. There are no unfit bodies, only unfit attitudes. Trust yourself and your teacher, and doors will open that lead to success. The work you put in here will reward you for a lifetime!
Our beautiful facility has a viewing foyer with windows, the perfect spot to observe the progress of the dancers in class, since only students are allowed to enter the dance studio. Our 3000 sq. ft. studio is equipped with a professionally sprung dance floor, providing a safe surface for all disciplines, reducing injury.
We also have Samantha's Dance Bag, owned by Lynn Alexander-Eakin, professionally trained to fit ballet and Pointe shoes. Students studying at STUDIO ONE are required to be fitted by Lynn. Samantha's Dance Bag also offers tights and leotards, of the finest quality, for purchase.
Our director, Cathy Girvin, lives her life as a dancer and teacher with a simple philosophy: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not men." (Colossians 3:23) She graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts and attended the School of American Ballet in New York on scholarship in 1972. Cathy has danced with The Memphis Ballet, Augusta Ballet, Dance Ensemble of Atlanta, and The Free Street Theatre of Chicago. She has both taught and choreographed for many dance studios and was the Ballet Mistress of The Galveston Ballet and The Raleigh Civic Ballet.
STUDIO ONE began in the summer of 1998. Our resident company, Souls of the Feet, formed in 2001. STUDIO ONE allows dancers an excellent opportunity to develop their talent in a professional and holy atmosphere. We are strongly grounded in the truth of the Gospel and give God the glory for the talent nourished here.
