Where Dance and Education Meet!


Dear Dance Family,

Our top priority here at Exhale is the health and well-being of our students and faculty.  Effective immediately we are temporarily suspending classes to aid our community in stopping the spread of COVID-19.  During that time we will follow the CDC’s guidelines to disinfect our entire space.  Exhale will attempt to offer make-ups for time missed by potentially holding classes over April Vacation, extending our season, and/or allowing dancers to attend other age-appropriate classes.

I am currently creating practice videos for the dancers to review at home.  It is important to keep the dancers moving and doing what they love… dancing!  (I also hope it will help parents keep their children occupied for a little while ;))  I am in the process of choosing a platform to do virtual dance classes for any families who are interested and technology-savvy.

I find it a bit disheartening to know that the studio will not be filled with the joyous sounds of dance and contagious laughter of our amazing students.  However, we must be responsible and do what is necessary to keep our community healthy and safe. I cannot wait to share my passion with all my students again.  Our goal is to have our dancers back in the classroom as soon as it is safe to do so.

We will keep re-evaluating the situation and send notifications every Friday about our status.

Stay well,
Mrs. Jen & ESD Staff


Welcome to Exhale A School of Dance!  Thank you for considering Exhale for your family’s dance education.  We offer empowering classes for all ages.  Exhale has classes for the two-year-old gaining their independence, the adolescent that ‘just needs to move’, the student dreaming of becoming a professional, and the adult needing a place to de-stress with exercise and music. Exhale’s mission is to create technical, strong dancers that have a lifelong love for moving and learning.  Our professional staff of dance educators brings this mission to life by creating a structured syllabus that emphasizes strong technique, dance history, and innovative choreography.  We are excited to share our brand new, state-of-the-art facility with the Norfolk community.

With appreciation,
Jen & ESD Staff
