About Us

Welcome to our NEW state of the art, custom built dance school!  As you enter from our private parking lot into our spacious reception area, you will be greeted by our office manager.  Our four dance studios are equipped with professional dance sprung floors, barres, mirrors, observation windows, bright walls and high ceilings - an environment designed to inspire our students!  The student waiting area and changing room has space for dance bags and coats.

Denise Ronco and her daughter, Veronica Beikirch are Co-Directors and Owners of Dance Connection, which has been serving your community for more than 35 years. Together with their staff, they create a positive family friendly atmosphere. Dance is not the only thing that we believe in teaching... confidence, independence, coordination, social skills, and teamwork to name a few!

Dance Connection offers quality dance education in a fun, non-competitive and nurturing environment and believe that dance is for every student.  We have a reputation for solid dance training, exceptional performance opportunities and a place where friendships are made that last a lifetime! 

Teaching our students to give back to the community is one of our greatest rewards. By organizing and producing annual charitable events, our Dance Connection family has contributed over $140,000 for various ROCHESTER children and adult charities (Webster Comfort Care, Seneca Park Zoo, Golisano Children’s Hospital, Breast Cancer Coalition, Alzheimer's Association, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Verona Street Animal Shelter, Hickok Center for Brain Injury, Jack Foundation, Gigi’s Playhouse, Fostering Hope & National Alliance on Mental Illness, Rochester's Imagination Library, and so many more)!

Dance Connection not only offers classes that will focus on a performance, we offer fitness, voice, acting, musical theatre, and so much more! 

Our Dance Families Thoughts

  • 35 years?!  DC was such an integral part of my childhood and growing up.  Thank you so much for everything you gave me as a teacher and a mentor.
