Dance Without Limits
Some kids are just born dancers, their faces light up when they hear music and they start shaking their body in tune with the beat. Whether it’s hip hop, jazz, or ballet that interests your child to dance, let them polish those smooth moves.
There are several dance studios in the Upstate, SC where you can enroll your child in different dancing classes, yet there is one dance studio in Greer that stands out from the rest because of its unique culture.

Dance is for everybody
Dance Without Limits believes that dancing is for everybody, regardless of age, shape, size, or ability. Everyone can benefit from dancing even those students with disabilities. Dance Without Limits gives opportunity to everyone who wishes to enjoy dancing, everyone including children with special needs who want to have fun and express themselves through dancing.
Beth, affectionately known as “Miss Beth” to her students, grow up from a large family who has members with special needs. She knows from a lifetime experience that every child is worth their time and attention. Their Limitless Friends Class specifically caters to students with special needs or disabilities from age 6 and up. The class incorporates games, free dance, and elements of jazz, hip hop, and acrobatics.
Let kids be kids
One of the best ways to get any child onboard is to make sure they can see the fun in the things they do and that is one of Dance Without Limits’ aims – for the kids to have fun. Dance Without Limits is committed to providing their students with a fun and positive learning environment.
They ensure that their students are having a great time learning, not frantic, and with other kids who are also having fun. They have different classes for every age group, some with accompanying adult, each class using age-appropriate music and exciting choreography.
With this positive and fun learning environment, there is no room for ‘unhealthy expectations’ or ‘pressure,’ it is also for this reason that Dance Without Limits chose not to join competitions. They want their students to have fun and just enjoy dancing. The stress of competitions overshadows what dance is really about – expressing themselves and an outlet for creativity. The sportsmanship and teamwork that competition inspires, they choose to build through excellent training and performance opportunities.
