Miss Linda’s School of Dance first opened in the fall of 1994 in South Boston.  The first dance recital was held on June 6, 1995 and included about 40 students in 18 different numbers.


In 2017 we expanded our classes and now offer a new component to our program, the competitive edge. We are proud to offer our students an opportunity to study a wide range of dance and experience the competition side of the industry.


In 2018 we opened a second studio in Dorchester.  We wanted to bring our love of dance to a wider community. 


2024 marks our 30th dance season. We are determined to keep dancing even among these difficult times. We know that dance is a positive influence on children and adults. We want to keep dancing for as long as we can.


Keep smiling and stay positive!
